Eight out of ten continue to follow the recommendations as much as or more than before

The latest survey from Kantar Sifo does not show any major changes from previous surveys. Just like last week, fewer believe they will be infected. At the same time, eight out of ten say they are following the recommendations today as much as or to a greater extent than one to two weeks ago.

The purpose of the survey is to continuously examine public opinion and behaviours in connection with COVID-19. From 21 March of this year, just over 14 000 individuals have responded to the survey. The target group is the general public, ages 18 to 79, and the selection has been randomly made from Kantar Sifo’s online panel.

Concern for the consequences of coronavirus

One in four believe they themselves will be infected, which is half the number in March and April. However, numbers remain high with respect to concern that unemployment will climb and that companies will suffer serious financial difficulties, around eight out of ten.

Public trust in authorities stable

Public trust in how the authorities and institutions are handling the pandemic remains the same. Every second person has a fairly or very high trust in the handling. The numbers regarding the measures Sweden has implemented to limit the spread of infection are also stable, where six out of ten believe the measures are well balanced.

Just like before, it remains important to follow the recommendations on distancing and frequently washing your hands with soap and water.

Data is collected using an online survey created by Kantar Sifo.
