Flash poll on COVID-19
These are some of the results of the survey carried out by Gallup International in the context of the Covid-19 situation, in which almost 25,000 people in 28 countries around the world participated. Among them are the United States, Russia and India, some of the most affected countries: Italy, the Republic of Korea, Spain, France, Germany, Switzerland, etc., as well as many other countries from different continents including Argentina through a survey conducted by Voices! from March 11 to 16, 2020. The GIA survey on COVID-19 is still being conducted in a dozen more countries, so the study will be updated in a few days. As the situation is changing rapidly, we have published immeditely all the results of the survey.
Some of the findings of the study:
- Most people worldwide express concern about themselves or their loved ones in relation to the Coronavirus. In Argentina, 75% of the population is afraid that they or a family member may have coronavirus.
- About three-quarters of the world's population say they could sacrifice some of their rights if that helps to fight the virus.
- Opinions are divided as to whether the threat of the Coronavirus is exaggerated or not. In Argentina, 40% think at the time of the survey that the danger is exaggerated while 49% consider the opposite and 11% declare that they do not know.
- The world society has uncertainty about what will happen in the next weeks with the evolution of the coronavirus. In Argentina, 46% believe that the worst is yet to come, while 42% think that it will remain as it is now and 11% think that the worst is over and that things will start to improve.
