April 2020: An Analysis of Driver Feedback about COVID-19

Throughout April, WorkHound received 3,297 comments from professional truck drivers. 750 of these comments explicitly referenced Coronavirus, representing nearly 23% of all comments. This is an increase of almost 9% compared to March data, while total comment volume remained stable. 

Compared to the first half of April, the percentage of comments about COVID-19 between April 16-30 was down almost 10 percent. This segment was still significant, though, representing nearly 18% of total comments in these two weeks. The decrease in COVID-19 comments in late April resulted in higher apparent volatility of theme prevalence from day-to-day, so it’s important to keep in mind the larger trends over time. This decrease also suggests that feedback specifically naming COVID-19 will decrease as the global pandemic is normalized and affects every aspect of the industry.
