  • When asked which of the following three issues they considered to be most important for the future of Wales:  
    • 52 per cent of people chose improving health care so that people can live healthier lives for longer 
    • 29 per cent of people chose protecting the planet for future generations 
    • 19 per cent of people chose making society more equal and fairer for all. 

The latest Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) public engagement survey report from Public Health Wales covers the period of 30th August – 5 September 2021, when approximately 600 random people were surveyed. 

Every two weeks, Public Health Wales conducts interviews with hundreds of people aged 18 or over across Wales, to understand how Coronavirus 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.
