Kekst CNC’s COVID 19 Opinion Tracker has become a key measure of public opinion throughout the current crisis, and an important tool for companies as they seek to understand changing attitudes towards established institutions, particular sectors, corporate and individual behaviour and considerations such as ESG. The third wave of our tracking survey has found that across the United States, the UK, Germany, France, Sweden and Japan the public believes that Germany has dealt best with the pandemic crisis, while the United States and UK are the worst responders.

The second edition of our international COVID-19 Opinion Tracker shows that the public continues to prioritise health over the economy in most countries. The survey findings have significant implications for business leaders as well as policy-makers around the world. It shows that even compared to just a month ago, people are expecting the impact of COVID-19 to last longer.

COVID-19 is having a significant impact on both business and society internationally. Kekst CNC have published the first edition of the COVID-19 Opinion Tracker to support our clients and the industries they serve to navigate these difficult times and to anticipate what the coming weeks and months will hold.


Tyskland är det land som flest länder anser har hanterat Coronakrisen bäst. Svenskarna är dock mest imponerade av Danmark. Sveriges något annorlunda hantering av viruset ses av de flesta andra länder som överlag positiv, med undantag för den tyska allmänheten som ger Sverige ett negativt nettobetyg. USA är det land som anses har klarat krisen sämst.

Corporate communications

Access to data facilitates informed decision-making. Making data driven decisions can increase organizational efficiency, increase the completion and success rate of projects, and drive down costs. This is true both for operations and for communications.

Även om svenskarna fortfarande prioriterar att stoppa smittspridningen framför att förhindra en ekonomisk recession har gapet mellan de två alternativen halverats den senaste månaden. Svenskarna är genomgående mindre oroade för krisens konsekvenser än befolkningen i andra länder.
