SINGAPORE – A recent survey on workplace resilience has found that close to six in 10 Singaporeans were satisfied with how the Government managed the Covid-19 situation, though they may feel stressed by the pandemic.

About 57 per cent of the respondents felt that the Government had a good grasp of the situation. About 29 per cent was neutral on this, while around 15 per cent felt the Government did not have a good grasp of the Covid-19 situation.

The survey also found that some 75 per cent of the respondents said they were satisfied with the timely and useful information the Government had provided on the Covid-19 situation, with 20 per cent feeling neutral and just five per cent who felt they were not receiving useful and timely information.

The survey was conducted by the National University Health System’s (NUHS) Mind Science Centre, with the help of community resource platform Launched on the platform on May 20, the survey had attracted 1,407 respondents by the time it wrapped up on June 15.

The respondents could choose from five answers – from strongly agree to neutral to strongly disagree – when responding to 10 statements.
