New study: How do Kazakh citizens comply with sanitary regulations?

4 May, 2021 11:49
The Kazakh Institute for Strategic Studies under the President of Kazakhstan presents the results of the survey the institute has conducted on how Kazakh citizens follow the recommendations of the Ministry of Healthcare under quarantine, reports Strategy2050.kz.

From the point of view of psychology, one of the criteria for a healthy adult personality is the ability to take personal responsibility for one's life and decisions. For more than a year we have been living under quarantine restrictions related to the coronavirus pandemic. During this time, our lives have changed, our attitudes and even our values have changed. 

In terms of preserving health, much depends on the person. Therefore, one of the important questions that interested sociologists was the question of compliance by the citizens with the recommendations of the Ministry of Healthcare.

According to the results of the sociological study, more than half of all respondents stated at the time of the survey that they always follow the basic recommendations in quarantine.  

The best situation is with wearing a protective mask in public places. 80.9 percent of respondents always follow this rule, and another 17.8 percent sometimes follow it and sometimes do not. And those who do not wear a mask in public places are less than 1 percent of all respondents.

More than half of all respondents always adhere to self-isolation in case of indisposition, use disinfectants and limit personal contacts with relatives. Approximately every second respondent always keeps a distance of 1.5-2 meters from others and limits his/her stay in the street. 

It should also be noted that among us there is also a sufficient share of those who observe the necessary norms of protective behavior not at all times. Thus, approximately every third respondent may from time to time continue contact with relatives, attending family events, and also not always observe the mode of self-isolation in case of indisposition. 

Research Methodology:

The survey method is an interview of the respondent at the place of residence by route quota sampling. The sample is 1,500 respondents aged 18 years and older in 59 urban and rural localities in 14 regions and 3 cities of national importance. Statistical error does not exceed 3.7 percent. Timeframe - August 2020.
