“The hype about the coronavirus seems to have subsided. There have been changes in the opinions of Kyrgyz people regarding COVID-19 compared with the beginning of 2020,” noted authors of the survey.
47 countries of the world participated in the survey, so we compared the results for our country with the data in other countries.
Vietnam has the greatest approval for government activities during the pandemic (100% of respondents). This is not surprising, because with a population of almost 100 million people, there were only 1.8 thousand cases (0.0019%).
The list also includes the Republic of Korea (89%), Azerbaijan (86%), India (86%), and Malaysia (79%).
The most considerable criticism in relation to the government actions has Bosnia and Herzegovina, where only 18% of respondents believe that the government is handling the Coronavirus well. Also, a very small part of the respondents positively assesses the activities of their governments in Spain, the United States, and Ukraine.
However, 70% of respondents across the surveyed countries in general are willing to sacrifice some of their human rights if it helps prevent the spread of the virus.
