Half a year into the coronavirus pandemic, only 47% of those surveyed have confidence that the Norwegian government has implemented the necessary financial measures, according to a Norwegian Corona Monitor survey by Opinion.
In total, 61,000 Norwegians were surveyed continuously over the past six months.
Confidence in the government’s financial measures against the pandemic’s harmful effects is now 6% below the average for the entire period.
A total of 22% of Norwegians believe that the government has not implemented the necessary measures, while 30% are not sure.
“The government scores better on providing information than on financial measures.
So far, September is likely to be the worse month during the pandemic in terms of confidence in the government’s financial measures,” senior adviser Nora Clausen at Opinion noted.
A total of 57% believe that Norway was not prepared well enough to handle a pandemic, while as many as 69% trust the information provided by the government.
