The results of the latest ‘How Are We Doing in Wales’ public engagement survey have been released by Public Health Wales.
The key findings are:
• 59 per cent of people felt they understand the current restrictions in place in Wales to reduce the spread of coronavirus ‘very well’.
• 42 per cent of people thought that all shops should be allowed to open within the next three weeks.
• 74 per cent of people agreed with the statement ‘it should be compulsory for all adults to be vaccinated against coronavirus’.
• 87 per cent of people said they thought people should have to prove they have been vaccinated in order to travel abroad.
• 84 per cent of people said they thought people should have to prove they have been vaccinated in order to work in a setting such as a care home or hospital.
• 13 per cent of people said they were ‘very worried’ that they could get coronavirus; a further decrease from 18% in the last survey week.
Every two weeks, Public Health Wales conducts interviews with hundreds of people aged 18 or over across Wales, to understand how Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) and the measures being used to prevent its spread are affecting the physical, mental and social wellbeing of people in Wales.
The survey is part of a raft of measures implemented by Public Health Wales to support public health and wellbeing through Coronavirus.
