  "abstract": "<p>How disruptive is Covid-19 to everyday life? How is the French population experiencing the lockdown? Is it<br>\nmagnifying existing inequalities and affecting social cohesion? The CoCo project sheds light on these pressing<br>\nquestions by comparing living conditions in France before and after the lockdown. This is the first of a<br>\nseries of research briefs that we will publish in the forthcoming weeks. We will explore this new experience<br>\nof &ldquo;sheltering-in-place&rdquo; and its impact on family life, schooling, work, health and well-being. This brief explores<br>\nhow French society has coped with the first two weeks of the lockdown. We find that the virus has<br>\nrapidly become a tangible threat, as more than forty percent of the population knows someone who has<br>\nbeen infected. Despite this, three out of four persons say that they do not feel overly stressed out. In certain<br>\ncases, the reaction has been almost philosophical -- long hours spent at home allow people to slow down<br>\nand think about the meaning of life. More than anything else, it is having access to green spaces and nature<br>\nwhich provides some relief to those attempting to cope with this home-based social organization. Still, some<br>\ncracks have appeared. Women, foreign-born residents, and individuals facing financial hardship are subject<br>\nto greater emotional strain than the rest of the population. Gender inequalities have been particularly reinforced<br>\nduring the lockdown: women have been spending even more time than usual cleaning and taking<br>\ncare of others. Although the Covid-19 virus tends to disproportionately strike men, the consequences of the<br>\nlockdown more intensely affect women.</p>",
