Increases the refusal to be vaccinated against the coronavirus among Spaniards. According to the CIS barometer for the month of November, 47 percent of those interviewed would not be willing to be vaccinated immediately, four points more than in October –43.8 percent. It also represents an increase compared to the study, published in August, by the Carlos III Health Institute, which estimated the population willing to be immunized by this procedure at 70 percent.
The survey, conducted from November 3 to 12, coincided with the Pfizer announcement that his vaccine was 90 percent effective, although he has recently raised it to 95.
Furthermore, the barometer also reflects that 73.6 per cent believe it was necessary for Parliament to take more demanding measures in the fight against the pandemic. Of this percentage, only 6 percent agree that the state of alarm should last six months, 4.4 percent of the sample consulted.
The CIS also determines that only 2.6 percent have had a positive diagnostic test. The total number of people who have undergone a test for the coronavirus amounts to 10.4 percent of those interviewed.
Spaniards call for health reform
The 87, 9 percent believe that reforms in the Spanish health system are necessary. For example, more than 95 percent of those interviewed who advocate this action choose to dedicate more financial resources or increase the workforce. Those who are inclined to improve coordination between the autonomous communities or increase the resources destined to combat pandemics are some fewer, but with quite high percentages – around 90 percent. The measure most urgently demanded by the Spanish would be the one related to increasing the health personnel.
The percentage of the population who believe that, in general, the majority are acting with civility and solidarity: 50.8 percent, almost two points more than last month. Likewise, the percentage of those who think the opposite is reduced, although to a lesser extent: 39.6 compared to 40.4 in October.
The distance with loved ones, the worst
Spaniards are clear that the aspect of the pandemic that is affecting them the most is distancing from loved ones, chosen by 18.2 percent, one point more than last month. Those who indicate that it affects them due to the economic labor issue has also increased, from 9.9 to 11.1 percent of those interviewed who point it out.
The third aspect with the greatest impact on the population is the negative mood, related to sadness or anxiety. In addition, the affected population has almost doubled in the last month, from 5.7 to 10.1.
The population that points restriction of freedom of movement as the aspect that affects them the most, it has also grown to around 7 percent.
