SEOUL, Aug. 12 (Korea Bizwire) — A recent survey showed that the vast majority of Koreans still think that it is important to control the number of COVID-19 patients despite the decline in the fatality rate resulting from the rollout of a national vaccination program.
The Graduate School of Public Health at Seoul National University conducted a survey of 1,000 adults over 18 years of age across the country.
At 90.6 percent, most of the respondents agreed that it was still important to control the number of coronavirus patients.
Based on the assumption that a majority of the people are COVID-19 vaccinated, 60.7 percent presented a positive view on the prospects of returning to normal life, while 63.6 percent presented a negative view.
On average, the respondents replied that they would feel safe from COVID-19 if the daily number of virus cases fell to 121 and 75.7 percent of the population was fully vaccinated.
