Description

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the economy and daily life. Social distancing measures put in place by the government to halt the spread of the virus have led to a surge in media consumption while Australians spend more time at home. This has fuelled concern about an ‘infodemic’ alongside the health pandemic.

This report is based on a national online survey of 2,196 Australians aged 18 and older, conducted between 18 and 22 April 2020. It examines how and where Australians are getting information about COVID-19, which sources they find trustworthy and what impact the intense news coverage has on their wellbeing.
