COVID-19 has affected the lives of many people in the world. The CEO of ABC research company has heard rumours that the virus may have a long-term impact on a person’s physical strength and mental capacity. He is interested to use human factors (HF) research methods to find out:
(a) How long do people who have recovered from COVID-19 take to regain their physical strength?
(b) Are there long-term effects on the ability to multi task for people who have recovered from COVID-19?
(c) Do people who have recovered from COVID-19 experience poorer situation awareness than others who have not contracted the virus?
Choose ONE (1) of the above parts (a, b, or c) and propose an experiment for the CEO. Clearly state all components of an experimental design (research question(s), hypotheses, etc), the data collection methods and data analysis methods in your research proposal to the CEO.
