Trust in Science Essential in Battle Against COVID-19

The trust people have in the medical advice and health information they receive — and who they trust to provide them — is always critical but is particularly important now as the world is scrambling to combat the spread of coronavirus or COVID-19.

But whom do people trust most for this information? Across much of the world, this answer is overwhelmingly doctors and nurses, according to the 2018 Wellcome Global Monitor survey. Nearly three in four (73%) adults worldwide say they trust a doctor or nurse most, far more than information from family and friends, traditional healers, religious leaders, and celebrities.
