One year of Corona – How people experience the pandemic
Based on the long-term COVID-19 Impact Survey, the new report emphasizes the attitude of people in Germany, Spain and Italy during the Corona pandemic.
The COVID-19 pandemic and its aftermath have been the central topic in politics and society for over a year now – in every family, among friends, and in the workplace. Workers in trade, the hospitality industry and the construction sector are affected threefold. They suffer the most from the economic consequences, are less frequently vaccinated than employees in administration and are exposed to a higher risk of infection because they can hardly work in a home office.
The Vodafone Institute’s new report, “One year of Corona: How people in Germany, Spain and Italy are experiencing the pandemic”, shows the long-term effects and impact of the pandemic – based on data from the Covid-19 Impact Survey, one of the largest long-term surveys of the impact of the Corona pandemic, conducted in Spain, Italy, Germany, Brazil and, most recently, Israel, with over 600,000 responses to date. The survey shows long-term developments, untethered from overlapping reports and heated discussions, and offers a clear view of the myriad consequences of the pandemic.
The report emphasizes the various aspects of the pandemic – from the psychological and economic effects to the willingness to be vaccinated against Covid-19. By the way, the willingness to get vaccinated is significantly lower in Germany than in Spain and Italy; as many as 17% of Germans distrust the government’s motives and therefore do not want to get vaccinated.
