Survey Result Details

Do you believe we will have a ‘twindemic’?

Result

We recently surveyed readers on their views regarding the likely confluence of both an influenza outbreak and a surge in COVID-19 cases.

While readers are evenly distributed in their belief that we will see a rise in cases for both airborne viruses, what is more interesting is a majority – 60% – acknowledge that the media’s use of the term, twindemic, influences their perception.

Essentially, the media coining the term, twindemic, affects their beliefs.

Other findings include 20% responding that they are not at all confident healthcare systems will diagnose influenza or COVID-19 correctly, and 60% not so confident and 20% not at all confident healthcare systems will document the viral infections correctly.
