Koreans fear coronavirus more than any other nationalities like the U.S., Japan and the U.K., a survey suggests.
Pew Research Center, an American think tank, polled people in 14 wealthy countries on what they see as the greatest threat, and Korea topped the list with a whopping 89 percent of respondents naming the spread of infectious diseases.
In Japan the proportion was 88 percent, in the U.S. and Spain 78 percent, and in the U.K. and France 74 percent. In Europe most people still perceive climate change as more dangerous than epidemics.
"In a year when the COVID-19 pandemic has dominated news headlines around the world, it is perhaps unsurprising to discover that majorities in 14 countries surveyed this past summer see the spread of infectious disease as a major threat to their countries", the think tank explained. "Climate change and terrorism... have been perceived as top threats in most years, but global economic conditions and cyberattacks have also been ranked highly as major threats" in this year's survey.
