Concern deepens after Germany trend

Supermarkets are reportedly being sold out as people panic. Disinfectants, face masks and sometimes toilet paper, not just pasta or canned food, are said to be sold out. But according to the DeutschlandTrend, only a small proportion of Germans are still frightened. For 76 percent, the concern that they or their family members could be infected is less serious or minor.

However, 89 percent were still of this opinion in February. Fear is creeping in, and finally no one can escape the constant reporting. However, only 23 percent still say that the risk of infection is high. With 400 people known to have been infected so far, that’s a lot. But the government also says that the peak has not yet been reached.

However, experts say that 40-70 percent of people worldwide could be infected in the near future, and that although the course of the disease is harmless for most people, the virus can spread quickly because there is no immunity – and for a long time there has been no vaccine. But the coronavirus is still considered more dangerous than influenza. And also because one is exposed to a jumble of more or less well-founded speculations every day, the uncertainty is increasing.

The growing uncertainty is also reflected in the fact that fewer people are convinced that the authorities and health institutions have the situation under control. 66 percent still trust them to do whatever it takes to keep the epidemic under control. But it is already 16 percent less. 28 percent, on the other hand, have no confidence and thus see the epidemic as being out of order. Nevertheless, Health Minister Spahn is gaining in prestige, with 51 percent satisfied with his work.

Those who are not afraid of infection will not change their everyday behavior. Only 11 percent say they had "coarser supplies" purchased. But 43 percent say they had foregone activities such as traveling or attending more coarse events. And three quarters were now washing their hands more often. This shows that many are already impressed.

Surprisingly, however, Germans seem to be more open to refugees at the Greek border. 57 percent are more likely to agree that refugees should be allowed into Greece and then distributed among EU states. 48 percent say states such as Germany and France should accept refugees. 93 percent of AfD voters and 54 percent of FDP voters oppose entry and distribution; as many as 60 percent of CDU voters oppose it.#

Thuringia has probably robbed the AfD and the FDP of sympathy. The AfD slips to 12 percent, 2 points less, the FDP to 6 percent, also 2 points less. Grune up one point to 23 percent, SPD up 2 points to 16 percent. The Union holds steady at 27 percent.
