SATIO, a company specializing in marketing research, has asked Belarusians to share their forecasts on how the situation with the COVID-19 epidemic will develop in our country.

The SATIO survey involved 1,002 people aged 18 to 64 from different regions of the country.

Sixty-two percent of respondents are sure that the situation will get worse within the next month.
