It can make people vulnerable to suggestions to bend COVID-19 safety guidelines, she said. We initially may have been fearful, but as we start to gain control we become more confident to confront situations that may have scared us. As a result, as the pandemic continues, some of us have adjusted and started to underestimate the actual threat, ignore situational hazards, and dont take COVID-19 risks as seriously. Speaking to Fox News, Dr. Collin Reiff, a psychiatrist and clinical assistant professor in the Department of Psychiatry at NYU Langone Health, likened caution fatigue to swimming in the ocean. People go swimming in the ocean, a potentially dangerous place, and dont take flotation devices with them. If you dont see anyone drown, you feel fine doing it, he said. But if we hear that 100,000 people died [while swimming in the ocean], and 180,000 could drown by October, you would see more people wearing a flotation device, he said, referringto a recent report that U.S. coronavirus deaths are projected to reach 180,000 by the beginning of October unless the majority of people start wearing face masks. Reiff also hypothesized that cognitive dissonance might play a part in those who find themselves having a more lax attitude toward recommended safety precautions. Experts still recommend safety precautions such as practicing social distancing, frequent hand washing and wearing a face covering while in public.
