Less than two months ago, parents agreed to send their children to school: IPOS survey

A survey has revealed that despite the corona virus epidemic in Pakistan, a lot of new infections are reported every day, with 51% of parents saying they are willing to send their children to school.

The IPSOS survey also found that the number had dropped in November from 90 percent in September, meaning fewer parents were now allowing their children to go to school.

The survey asked for answers through computer-assisted telephone interviews (CATI), taken from 1,013 Pakistani adults over the age of 18 between September and November.

When respondents were asked if they were willing to be vaccinated against the corona virus, 62% said yes, while 38% said they did not like the idea.

The majority – 56% – also feared a second corona virus outbreak in Pakistan. This is a significant increase from September when only 35% of people feared another wave of epidemics.

For the latest epidemic news, people said they trust local television news channels the most, while Twitter and WhatsApp emerged as the most reliable sources.

Nineteen percent said they preferred local news channels, three percent said they trusted a religious site, two supported Facebook and the Internet, and six percent said they trusted their doctor for accurate information. Are

In response to a question about financial hardship caused by epidemics, 83% of respondents said their incomes have declined since the outbreak. This means that now four out of every five households have reduced their income.

The majority of respondents – 88% – also reported being upset by the rise in commodity prices. However, 12% said they had no such concerns.

The majority (49%) believed that the federal government was responsible for the rise in commodity prices, followed by the provincial governments at 17%.

Some (15%) thought that previous governments had played their part, while 8% thought that an unknown mafia was behind the increase.

Some (5%) also blamed the shopkeepers, 3% blamed the bureaucracy and 3% blamed the mill owners.

Between April and November, there was a significant drop in the percentage of people who felt the epidemic was a threat to different sections of society.

While 50% of people felt personal risk in April, only 35% said they felt personal risk from the virus in November.

In April, 48% reported a threat to their families, while in November it dropped to 35%.

In addition, in April, 54% of people said the corona virus was a threat to the community at large, while 34% said it was a threat to the community in November.

In April, Pakistan generally faced one of the greatest threats, with 83% of the population being at risk. In November, it dropped to 43%.
