Survey shows Luandans are more afraid of getting infected than running out of food

The fear of being contaminated by covid-19 comes first in a survey of the pandemic carried out on the population of Luanda, followed by the fear of running out of food, reveals a survey carried out by Marktest Angola.


The results of the eighth survey, carried out on 355 people living in Luanda, over 15 years old, through a questionnaire with five questions, collected between the 2nd and 6th of July, were presented this Thursday in Luanda.

The survey states that 46 percent of Luandans expressed fear of being contaminated by covid-19, that 14 percent are afraid of food shortages and 8 percent that the national health system will not ensure the necessary response to the pandemic, in addition to not survive the virus.

In contrast, 84 percent of the population of Luanda know who to turn to if they suspect they have contracted the virus, which they have already done in Angola, since last March when the first case emerged, 458 infected and 23 deaths.

Regarding the greater or lesser concern since the beginning of the pandemic in the country, 73 percent of Luandans expressed "much more or more concern" and regarding the latest measures taken by the Government 65 percent agree and 25 percent do not agree.

“Compared to the beginning of April, it appears that the attributes that suffered the greatest change compared to the beginning of April were confidence (-18 percent), calm / tranquility (-14 percent), relaxation (-9 percent ) and good mood (-9 percent) ”, indicates the survey.

Anxiety / stress also decreased (-13 percent), but insecurity rose (12 percent), compared to the beginning of April, with “the three attributes that best demonstrate the state of mind of Luandans today being concern (56 percent), calm (41 percent) and feeling insecure (35 percent) ”.

After this survey, another one will be carried out to find out whether the new measures to prevent and combat the pandemic are or are not to the liking of the population of Luanda, the epicenter of the disease and under a health fence.

According to the director of Marktest Angola, Ana Pereira, the objective of the study is to understand what people think about the new reality, how they are living and how they are even reinventing themselves at this stage.
