DIF conducted another round (R2) of mask adherence study in 5 cities- Jammu, Delhi/NCR, Kolkata, Hyderabad and Mumbai post the third wave to understand how mask adherence behaviour changes during and after a Covid-19 wave. The study spanned over a period of 17 days from 1st March to 21st March 2022.
Sample size: 4292 samples were collected from the 5 cities and a subset of 798 interviews
