VTsIOM-Sputnik conducted a survey to find out how many people in Russia are afraid of getting infected and what consequences they expect from restrictive measures in the country. Most are afraid of being infected, but half the expected economic deterioration for themselves.

According to RIA News, for the survey, sociologists used telephone interviews. In total, about 1,6 thousand people from 18 years old took part in the study. As sociologists found out, about 60% of Russians are afraid of contracting the coronavirus themselves or worried about their relatives. At the same time, it is half that - only 31% of respondents fear losing their job or income. They found it difficult to answer or said they were not afraid of anything, only 9% of the respondents.

Sociologists also note that 58% of respondents believe that coronavirus is more dangerous than seasonal flu. Approximately the same danger of the virus is estimated by 26% of respondents. Another 7% of respondents believe that coronavirus is less dangerous than flu. Another 9% of Russians found it difficult to give such estimates.

In addition, 75% believe that the authorities are taking sufficient measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus. 27% disagree with them, and another 11% of respondents believe that measures are redundant. The remaining 5% found it difficult to answer. According to Russians, volunteers help a lot more than the state - 75% of respondents gave such answers. Another 12% rated the help of volunteers as insignificant, and 13% were not able to evaluate their work.
