    Results from LimitationRecognizer: We detected the following sentences addressing limitations in the study:
    The study has several limitations, and thus the results should be interpreted with caution. The study has used a qualitative design, with the results based on viewpoints of 88 purposely selected participants; therefore, the results cannot be generalized. However, we argue that the insight provided by the participants is of high relevance in providing tailored services to different immigrant groups, and for future research. Furthermore, participants were partially recruited from a resource group that serves as a breach between health institutions and immigrants, and who provide Covid-19 information to their respective communities in their local languages. Consequently, the information they provided may be partially influenced by their frustration with community members who do not listen and act upon the information provided. However, the interviews were conducted by researchers with a strong competence on migration and health, as well as prior experience with qualitative interviews. Therefore, we are confident that the data were collected professionally, with limited participant- and researcher-related bias. Despite the limitations, the research described in this paper has two main implications. First, the study found that socio-economic factors such as overcrowding households negatively affect an immigrant’s ability to adhere to Covid-19 preventive measures. Overcrowding is a risk factor for various types of ill health, including both somatic and mental health. To reduce the ...

    About SciScore

    SciScore is an automated tool that is designed to assist expert reviewers by finding and presenting formulaic information scattered throughout a paper in a standard, easy to digest format. SciScore checks for the presence and correctness of RRIDs (research resource identifiers), and for rigor criteria such as sex and investigator blinding. For details on the theoretical underpinning of rigor criteria and the tools shown here, including references cited, please follow this link.
