Half Of Canadians Concerned About Monkeypox: Survey

By Allan Dearing Aug 25, 2022 | 2:47 PM


A new survey has assessed the level of concern Canadians have about the monkeypox outbreak.

Just over half of Canadians (53%) are concerned about the outbreak according to Narrative Research.

The poll found three in ten are not concerned while two in ten are indifferent or unsure about the viral outbreak.

The survey also found women are more concerned than men and younger generations are more concerned than older generations.

More than 1,200 adult Canadians took part in the online survey earlier this month.

The Public Health Agency of Canada says there are now more than 1,200 confirmed cases of monkeypox across the country with one case each in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.

Ontario currently has nearly half of the country’s cases.

PHAC says the virus is spread through close personal contact, touching contaminated objects or from animals to humans.
