Almost a year with the pandemic: the results of an international Gallup research

People around the world are still mobilized against the threat, hoping for vaccines. However, the potential problems are becoming more significant. 

Assessments of government action in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic are still quite high, but they are gradually declining. Compared to last spring, the threat of the disease is also considered significant, but today people in most countries find it somewhat exaggerated. Travel restrictions are widely recognized as a means of combating a pandemic. Human rights sacrifices are also present, but not without criticism. Attitudes towards vaccines are very positive, although the shadow of doubt remains significant and even dominates in a number of countries.
