Description: With the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic currently affecting every corner of the world, we believe there is a critical need to understand how we behaviourally react to the current pandemic. Given currently there is no real treatment or vaccination, containment of the spread of virus are heavily relied on precautionary behaviour from fellow citizens, therefore, understanding the drivers behind behavioural responses such as mobility are of acute importance. We conducted a study to explore risk and human behaviour in the COVID-19 setting across 60 countries by combining the newly released data on human mobility by Google (Community Mobility Reports) with a globally representative dataset on risk preferences based on (Falk et al., 2016; Falk et al., 2018).
