A poll by Sotomo run in June 2020 on behalf of RTS suggests 26% of the Swiss public expect a resurgence of Covid-19 cases.
When the survey was run in May 2020, 51% of those questioned expected the number of SARS-CoV-2 infections in Switzerland to grow – 14% expected a strong increase and 37% expected a slow steady increase.
When questioned in June 2020, only 26% said they expected numbers to rise – 2% expected a strong increase and 24% expected a slow steady increase.
The percentage of French speakers expecting a rise in infections fell from 66% to 32% from May to June. In German-speaking Switzerland the same percentage went from 45% to 25%. In Italian-speaking Switzerland it went from 64% to 25%.
However, 18% across all of Switzerland said they couldn’t judge what might happen, a percentage that grew from 9% in May 2020. By June 2020, 30% of French-speakers said they couldn’t judge what might happen, while only 13% of Italian speaker and 18% of German speakers did.
The survey is based on answers of 31,011 respondents over the age of 15 across Switzerland. It was carried out between 5 and 8 June 2020.
