Will We Have to Live with COVID-19 Forever?

Read Time:45 Seconds

February 24. Most people around the world now believe that we will never eradicate COVID-19. But as we learn to live with the virus, should vaccination be mandatory? A new survey shows vaccination mandates remain controversial.

Ipsos surveyed 20,500 adults in 30 countries between the end of January and the first week of February 2022 and found that almost three-quarters (71%) think COVID-19 is here to stay.

But the picture is very mixed when it comes to support for compulsory vaccination. In India, China, Malaysia, Singapore and much of Latin America, more than three-quarters back the idea.

But there are majorities against vaccine mandates in most of central and eastern Europe, as well as in the United States.

There is also no global agreement on the need for people to be vaccinated to go into offices or visit restaurants and sporting venues.
