KUALA LUMPUR, May 28 ― Covid-19 is still at the top of Malaysians’ minds even after more than a year and despite the government ramping up vaccinations, a survey found.

The survey by research outfit Ipsos is done monthly in 28 countries and lists five key issues that concern respondents the most.

In Malaysia, up to two-thirds of respondents listed Covid-19 as their top concern, surpassing political and financial corruption which came in second at 51 per cent.

Concerns about the coronavirus dipped in February this year when the last major wave subsided. As daily cases surged again, with the past three days seeing record high rates of above 7,000, fear of Covid-19 is now close to peak levels.
