Individual countries have developed very different strategies in responding to COVID-19, which can shape how citizens view the pandemic. How do different national traditions and past levels of trust in experts shape those national reactions?  This project funded by the Health Research Board and the Irish Research Council is examining the perceptions of the pandemic in five European countries (Ireland, Sweden, Serbia, Germany and England), and will look at how pre-existing levels of trust in the Government and in experts together with different national traditions are shaping the varieties of reactions to the pandemic.
