In July’s edition of OPINAIA LAB, the monthly cycle of webinars dedicated to the dissemination of our main studies, we present the results of the regional survey “The impact of Covid-19 on Latin American Public Opinion.”

The objective of the investigation was to compare the different realities in Latin America in relation to the coronavirus and its political, economic and social impact; from different online surveys in Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Mexico and Uruguay.

Synthetically, three research findings could be reviewed. The imaginary about the pandemic, in the first place, is strongly associated with health indicators. In other words, countries with a greater number of fatalities are more concerned and afraid of the virus. Likewise, where the health system is more solid, there is a greater level of preparation to attend to and resolve covid-19 cases.

Then, there is a general consensus on the pandemic negative impact on personal and family economy. In all countries, evaluations on the current economy are more negative than positive. “Clothing and footwear” and “household appliances and electronics” are the most affected items in the reallocation of expenses according to the opinion of those consulted.

Finally, public opinion evaluates governments according to the virus’ health impact, and not so much because of quarantine implemented strategies. The governments of Uruguay, Mexico and Argentina are satisfactorily rated for what they have been doing in relation to the pandemic, while in the cases of Chile and Brazil the evaluations are more critical. Isolation policies, in this context, show significant levels of adherence in different countries, above 60%.

We invite you to watch the webinar and to draw your own conclusions from the data. Thank you very much!
