The number of people who maintained increased hygiene decreased only slightly. It fell from 91 percent in May to 89 percent in June. In public veils, the proportion of people fell to 84 percent from 94 percent in May. In June, 65 percent of people restricted traveling by public transport, and 72 percent in May. The share of people who shopped less in stores fell to 52 percent from 66 percent in May. Meetings with family, friends, colleagues or business partners were limited in June by only 46 percent of respondents.
Women continued to pay more attention to measures against the spread of the disease than men. “We recorded a higher share of compliance with most of the mentioned measures in people aged 55 and over, especially in people over 65,” said the authors of the survey.
At least once, a tenth of the survey participants were tested for covid-19, of which only three percent had a positive test, the survey found. Eight out of ten people do not personally know anyone in whom the disease is confirmed. Eight percent of people were suspected of being infected with a new type of coronavirus based on symptoms. In the Karlovy Vary region it was 14 percent, in contrast in the Zlín region only two percent.
Definitely or rather, more than three quarters of people were still interested in the development of the situation around the spread of coronavirus in June. “This is a slight decrease in interest by nine percentage points compared to the same question asked in the May survey,” CVVM said. Rather, in June, about a fifth of people were not interested in covid-19, three percent were certainly not interested in the development.
Between 4 and 17 June, 1,011 people over the age of 18 took part in the CVVM survey. Dozens of new cases of the disease were increasing daily in the Czech Republic at that time. After May 25, people in the Czech Republic no longer had to wear masks outside while keeping their distance from others, the interiors of restaurants and accommodation facilities were opened, the limit for group events outside and inside increased to 300 participants, primary school pupils could return to primary schools .
