Report explores perceptions of COVID-19 virus transmission risk on public transport

23 February 2022

Our colleagues have recently published a paper as part of the PROTECT COVID-19 National Core Study on transmission and environment, which explores perceptions of the risk of transmission of SARS-CoV-2 (the virus that caused COVID-19) and of the effectiveness of controls implemented on public transport in the UK.

The report, produced as part of one of a number of sector-specific studies being carried out under Theme 3 of PROTECT, describes qualitative research carried out by researchers from The University of Manchester and the Health and Safety Executive between January and May 2021. This research included interviews with sector experts, transport companies, unions, workers and passengers.
