Why was the research conducted?

Our contribution to the fight against Covid19 in the DR Congo

How was the research conducted?

It was a CATI study with 8 interviewers working in a room from June 3rd to June 9th, 2020.

What are the key findings of the research?

The pandemic is considered serious by 32% of opinions expressed against 60% of opinions for non-severity. Reasons for the perception of the pandemic severity remain the same as the last waves: statistics on deaths worldwide, exponential growth of confirmed cases and difficulties in controlling the pandemic.

60% of opinions expressed on the non-seriousness of this pandemic are justified by the absence of the disease in their region and direct environment. Others, on the other hand, believe that it is a disease that can be managed by actually practising barrier gestures.

Since the coming of Covid-19, hand washing, food expenditure, media consumption and purchase of communication packages have sharply risen to become more expensive. There has also been a significant decrease in friendly/family visits and meetings, savings and public transport.

The idea of taking a vaccine against Covid-19 is accepted by only 29% of respondents against 56% who reject it.
