Staying up to date on trends in the salon and spa marketplace during COVID-19, is key. Here is an example of some recent information:
Six months into the coronavirus pandemic, some people are on edge, while others are just plain confused. Adding to the increasingly chaotic nature of the information superhighway in 2020, others are sharing misleading information and outright falsehoods across the internet and on television.
Some outlandish rumors persist. To adherents of such beliefs, the coronavirus is a dastardly bioweapon designed to wreak economic armageddon on the West; a left-wing conspiracy to damage the re-election prospects of President Donald Trump; a virus that leaked from a laboratory in Wuhan, China.
A new study in the latest edition of the American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene identified 2,311 reports of rumors, stigma and conspiracy theories in 25 languages from 87 countries related to COVID-19 across social media and, yes, online news media sites.
Do you have to wear a mask outdoors? Only medical-grade N95 surgical masks with goggles work, right, so why bother wearing a homemade face covering?
Paranoia politicizes a public-health emergency and distracts from potentially life-saving measures. “Misinformation fueled by rumors, stigma, and conspiracy theories can have potentially serious implications on the individual and community if prioritized over evidence-based guidelines,” the study said.
The five most oft-shared claims were related to the seriousness of the illness and transmission, and the fatality rate (collectively 24%); the effectiveness of control measures (21%); treatments and cures touted online (19%); and the origins of pandemic (15%). (About that last one: 30% of Americans say coronavirus was made in a lab, despite evidence to the contrary, a Pew Research Center survey found earlier this year.)
