Nach einem Artikel von AOL Lifestyle könnten neuartige Covid-19 Varianten für Flirtverhalten verantwortlich sein. Wissenschaftler des britischen Covid Symptom Study haben herausgefunden, dass Menschen, die mit den Varianten infiziert sind, eher in der Öffentlichkeit flirten und sich weniger an die Abstandsregeln halten.

Die Forscher analysierten Daten von mehr als einer Million Personen, die über eine spezielle App Symptome von Covid-19 meldeten. Dabei stellten sie fest, dass Menschen, die mit den neuen Varianten infiziert waren, doppelt so häufig angaben, öffentlich zu flirten, im Vergleich zu Personen mit der Standardform des Virus.

Die Studie deutet darauf hin, dass die Variante B.1.1.7, die zuerst in Großbritannien auftrat, für das veränderte Verhalten verantwortlich sein könnte. Die Wissenschaftler warnen vor den Gefahren dieser neuen Entwicklung und fordern dazu auf, weiterhin die Abstandsregeln und Hygienemaßnahmen einzuhalten, um die Verbreitung der Varianten einzudämmen.
