Coronavirus biggest concern among Swiss, according to survey

The coronavirus pandemic and its consequences rank at the top of the list of Swiss concerns in 2020, according to a recent survey.

This is the first time in the history of the Crédit Suisse Worry Barometer that a new issue has topped the list of people’s worries.

Following in second and third place on the worry list were the state retirement provision and the issue of unemployment.

A sample of Swiss citizens were asked to list their top five concerns. 51% named the coronavirus pandemic as their top concern. State retirement provision (37%) came second, followed by (youth) unemployment (31%) – a concern that is likely related to worries about the ramifications of the pandemic.

Next were environmental issues and climate change (29%), foreigners and immigration (28%), health care and health insurance (28%), EU issues (23%), refugees and asylum (23%), social security (17%) and nuclear energy (14%).

When asked what consequences of the coronavirus pandemic will still be felt in Switzerland three years from now, 78% indicated that they expect to see higher unemployment numbers and 59% anticipate a negative impact on retirement provision. Most also expect there to be negative effects on tourism in Switzerland, the monitoring of Swiss citizens and on the country’s export economy until 2023.
