How are Hong Kongers attitude change whilst living with COVID-19?

Some have an increased desire to travel whilst some are still concerned about health.

More desire to travel and increased concerns about health are some of the attitude changes that Hong Kongers underwent whilst living with COVID-19, a survey by Manulife Hong Kong revealed.

The survey highlights how Hong Kongers are trying to regain normalcy in their daily lives.

30% of survey respondents have indicated that they have plans to travel in the next 12 months. Meanwhile, 45% said that fear of infection is no longer a reason not to go out and meet friends and families. Quarantine restrictions aside, almost half are comfortable travelling to countries that have adopted living with COVID-19 strategies.

Mental and physical health

Despite Hong Kongers slowly beginning to want to go out again, concern about infection is still some of the top worries of residents. 61% of survey respondents said they are worried about COVID-19 spreading to children and the elderly whilst 62% are concerned about the long-term effects of COVID-19.

Due to the unease, 74% said they still continue to adhere to strict personal hygiene protocols.

Additionally, health concerns do not just focus on COVID-19. In fact, 84% are worried about the spread of another unknown disease in Hong Kong.

“It is clear from our research that people now want to enjoy the levels of normalcy experienced before the pandemic, despite COVID-19 still being a health concern for many people in Hong Kong. The ongoing virus has affected the daily lives and well-being of people of all ages, regardless of whether or not they have contracted the virus. However, the survey shows a positive attitude shift among Hongkongers,” said Danny Lee, Chief Product Officer, Manulife Hong Kong and Macau.
