Survey finds that 3 in 5 Pakistanis still believe COVID-19 threat is ‘exaggerated’
The virus has currently impacted over 14,000 people in Pakistan and the cases continue to increase.
According to research conducted by Gallup and Gillani Pakistan, 3 in 5 people believe that the COVID-19 threat is ‘exaggerated’. It shows that despite the worsening situation, a good majority of people are still not taking the pandemic seriously.
A sample was collected from all women and men and the following question was asked:
‘’To what extent do you agree/disagree that the Coronavirus threat is exaggerated’’.
Responding to this question, 62% agreed that the threat is exaggerated, meanwhile, 38% disagreed.
Due to less awareness, majority of the people in Pakistan are still unaware of what is happening in the country and across the world. This is especially common among those who don’t have any access to the internet.
The virus has currently impacted over 14,000 people in Pakistan and the cases continue to increase. In order to overcome the virus, it is important that awareness is spread amongst the mass about the disease and its seriousness.
