59.2% of Spaniards believe that both the central and regional governments should have taken stricter “control measures” to tackle the coronavirus pandemic, according to the latest report from the Center for Sociological Research (CIS). Only one in four, 25.8% of those surveyed, considers that those that have been carried out are and have been “adequate and necessary” measures. 2.1% think that restrictions that limit freedoms should not be approved and 4.7% do not have enough information.
The survey, which was conducted between December 11 and 16, has also asked about future perceptions of citizens “once we have one or more vaccines” against the coronavirus. Almost half, 47.6%, believe that, once this happens, they will be able to do “everything they did before the pandemic”, while 25.1% believe that “not yet” and 9 , 7% deny it “definitely”. Among those who are placed in these last two options, 30% believe that there is still time to pass “for normality and to see the effects” and almost 22% think so because they do not trust the vaccine, in the speed with which it has been manufactured and doubts its efficacy Another 21.2% think that there have been many changes in all areas and life is not going to be the same.
All this emerges from the CIS barometer published this Thursday, the third one focused on the effects and consequences of the pandemic. The agency includes questions about the coronavirus in its monthly barometers, but this survey deals specifically with the health emergency.
