BERLIN (dpa-AFX) – According to a survey, almost every second German (49 percent) perceives the current rules to combat the corona pandemic as a very strong or strong burden. That emerges from the new “Germany trend” of the “ARD morning magazine”. In the week before Christmas, it was 36 percent of those surveyed.
However, 42 percent of Germans currently feel the restrictions are less of a burden, and according to the survey, 9 percent do not feel that they are at all burdened by them. Younger people in particular have difficulties with the corona measures. Among those under 40, six out of ten (59 percent) speak of severe to very severe stress. For those over 65, it is only 37 percent.
The acceptance of crisis management by the federal and state governments is, however, declining. While in mid-December 57 percent of respondents said they were positive about crisis management, only 46 percent of Germans are currently satisfied with it./stz/DP/he
