Australians are more concerned about job losses and their mental health than the health implications of COVID-19, according to a landmark survey.
The survey conducted by YouGov and News Corp reveals Australians’ attitudes towards the pandemics and lockdowns are shifting.
Associate Editor at The Australian Cameron Stewart told Sky News Australia the survey captures the mood about lockdowns and the tradeoffs.
“If you dwell into these figures, they are pretty stark, one in three people say they are financially worse off,” he said.
“With mental health, it is even more stark, in Victoria and New South Wales more than 50 per cent of people say they are emotionally worse off in the past three months.
“These are pretty stark figures and I think they reflect the changing mood in the country.”
