Majority for stricter corona rules for unvaccinated people
Should stricter corona rules apply to unvaccinated people than to vaccinated people? The majority of the population has a clear opinion here.
Berlin. According to a survey, the majority of possible stricter corona restrictions for unvaccinated people than for vaccinated people, for example with access to indoor events, meet with approval.
In the survey by the polling institute YouGov, 58 percent were in favor of stricter rules for unvaccinated people – 28 percent, on the other hand, consider the same rules as those for vaccinated and convalescents to be correct. Another 9 percent of those surveyed said they rejected all measures to combat the corona pandemic.
3G rule or 2G rule
With a view to autumn and winter, the so-called 3G rule applies nationwide for certain indoor spaces such as events and restaurants: access only with proof of vaccination, recovery or negative test. The 2G rule, which has already been applied in some cases, is also under discussion, i.e. access only for vaccinated or convalescent people.
According to the survey, approval of this increases with age. According to this, 71 percent of respondents aged 60 and over are in favor of stricter rules for unvaccinated people – 36 percent for 18 to 29 year olds. Even more people among the elderly have already been vaccinated. The same rules for vaccinated, convalescent and unvaccinated people meet with the highest agreement among younger people up to 29 years of age (49 percent). Less than 20 percent are in favor of this among older people aged 60 and over.
According to the survey, there are also regional differences: Stricter rules for unvaccinated people support 60 percent of those surveyed in western Germany and 49 percent in the east. When it comes to vaccination rates, most of the eastern German states lag behind in a national comparison.
According to the information, 2022 people aged 18 and over were interviewed for the survey between August 27 and 31.
