AbstractThe evolution of the COVID19 pandemic worldwide has shown that the most common and effective strategy to control it used worldwide involve imposing mobility constrains to the population. A determinant factor in the success of such policies is the cooperation of the population involved but this is something, at least, difficult to measure. In this manuscript, we propose a method to incorporate in epidemic models empirical data accounting for the society predisposition to cooperate with the mobility restriction policies.
