A study on individuals supporting their neighbors during the early stage of the COVID-19 lockdown revealed that they used different means of communication to reach out to those living nearby who needed some sort of help, making even greater effort to contact vulnerable groups.
Their ways of supporting others included everything from delivering food and medical prescriptions, to providing information, advice or even sharing of experiences. Quite a few of such individuals reportedly felt more involved in the neighborhood life after the pandemic and showed interest in committing to it even more in the future.
