Poland is the only country out of 26 surveyed in which citizens declare less confidence in doctors than their families and friends in relation to information on the Covid-19 epidemic, according to the YouGov survey.
In all the countries surveyed, except for Poland, healthcare workers were the group that respondents trust most – the trust index was at least 79 percent. Poland is an exception compared to 26 countries: the group that enjoys the greatest confidence when it comes to information on the coronavirus epidemic is 'family and friends' (81 percent of responses), followed by 'doctors and nurses' (72 percent indications).
A survey of a British market research company also indicates that Poles do not trust the media regarding information about pandemics (less than 40 percent) – only Italy, Great Britain and France had worse results in this respect.
However, Poles trust their government the least – just over 30 percent of respondents said they believe the government on coronavirus pandemic issues. Only France recorded a worse result.
