Humane orientation is negatively related to the speed of COVID-19 spread.
Humane orientation is defined as "the degree to which individuals in organizations or societies encourage and reward individuals for being fair, altruistic, friendly, generous, caring, and kind to others" (199). Humane orientation is tested against the length (in days) of each phase, the average daily cases of each phase, and the average daily case growth rate for each phase in study 2. The relationship between humane orientation and number of days was significant for phase 4 (coefficient=28.31, p<.05) and phase 13 (coefficient= -267.72, p<.1) (wrong direction). The relationship between humane orientation and average daily cases was significant only for phase 4 (coefficient= -409.43, p<.1). The relationship between humane orientation and average daily case growth was significant also only for phase 4 (coefficient= -16.02, p<.1). While there is some significance for the 3,001-4,000 case window that humane orientation slowed the spread of COVID-19, it does not seem to have been a larger pattern.
