Liputan6.com, Jakarta Data compiled by the Handling Task Force COVID-19 displays, women are more obedient to apply health protocol than men. This result is a survey conducted by the Central Statistics Agency (BPS) April 2020 and the Health Research and Development Agency of the Ministry of Health in July 2020.
The implementation compliance level details health protocol based on gender, as follows:
1. Keep Distance: 77 percent female, 67 percent male
2. Washing hands with soap and running water: 85 percent of women, 76 percent of men
3. Use of masks: 89 percent of women, 77 percent of men
The Head of the Behavior Change for the Task Force for Handling COVID-19 Sonny Harry B Harmadi revealed that the reason for women is to comply more health protocol.
“Because these women are also mothers. Mothers usually become role models for their children and their families,” said Sonny during the dialogue Behavior Change Dissemination, written Monday (5/10/2020).
“It turns out consistently, women’s compliance is higher than men. Both the results of the survey conducted in April and July 2020.”
Wear a mask, wash hands with soap, keep your distance and avoid crowds.
