A News24/Ipsos poll has revealed what appears to be high levels of apathy among News24 readers toward Covid-19, and particularly among young people.
About 43% of people ages 35 to 39 expected to get the virus, which is the highest percentage across the age groups.
But when the results of the survey were split according to race, the concern was markedly higher among coloured people at 70%, compared to other aged groups, of which around 53 to 60% were afraid someone close to them would die of Covid-19.
About 65% of white people said they would have access to quality healthcare if infected, compared to 52% of black participants.
While the percentage of those who would vaccinate was in the high 60% across all age groups, it was Indian/Asian people who were more likely to do so out of all race groups.
