According to an SRG survey, 62 percent of those surveyed already had a conflict due to different views on the Corona issue. (Symbol image)
Almost half (48 percent) had already experienced such conflicts in their immediate surroundings, and 26 percent even broke off contacts entirely. This was the result of a special evaluation as part of the 8th SRG Corona Monitor by the Sotomo research center for the program Schweiz aktuell from the SRF channel.
There are differences between the various age groups: the topic polarizes more among younger people than among older people. Among the over 65 year olds, 51 percent were already involved in such conflicts, among the 35 to 65 year olds and among the 15 to 34 year olds it is 65 percent, as Switzerland reported on Friday.
Contact with relatives broken off
The subject of vaccination also seems to be a particular cause for conflict. It is much more likely that people who do not want to be vaccinated have arguments with their environment about Corona. More than three quarters of those who did not want to be vaccinated had already quarreled about it, and almost a third of them had broken off contact with acquaintances, colleagues, friends or relatives because of this.
Among the vaccinated, 57 percent of those questioned were involved in a conflict and 25 percent broke off contact with a caregiver as a result. In their immediate environment, 44 percent of those vaccinated and 64 percent of those who did not want to be vaccinated experienced such conflicts.
The data collection for the 8th survey by the SRG Corona Monitor took place between July 1st and 5th, 2021. 23,337 people over 15 years of age were surveyed (German-speaking Switzerland: 16,695, French-speaking Switzerland: 5738, Italian-speaking Switzerland: 904). (SDA / bra)
