“The impact of the pandemic is considerably less in Portugal,” the study stresses.
In general, the Portuguese feel less affected by all the problems, compared to the world average.
Besides Covid-19, climate change and air pollution are the problems most cited by the people surveyed who feel personally most affected by what happens globally.
According to the same study, discrimination against ethnic, racial or religious minorities is not noticed much in Portugal, nor is the lack of access to health care.
