According to the NDI June 2020 public attitudes survey, 73% of Georgians believe the country’s relatively low rate of infections and spread is due to steps taken by the government and doctors, while 17% say it’s mostly due to Georgians’ genetics and religion.
"Georgians say they get their news on COVID-19 primarily from television (84 percent), social media (41 percent), and friends, family and colleagues (26 percent). When asked how they determine whether information on Facebook related to COVID-19 is true or false, 61 percent of those who receive news about COVID-19 from social media, point to the source or media channel, whereas a plurality, 37 percent, relies on their instincts. The Lugar Lab, a prominent target of disinformation, received an overwhelmingly positive assessment, with 66 percent saying it has prevented the spread of COVID-19 in Georgia. Looking ahead, 80 percent of citizens remain concerned that they or their family members will get infected with the virus", - reads the report.
