Analysts found out what Russians think about the origin of the coronavirus. The results of a study of a high-paying job search service are at the disposal of RT.
So, from the point of view of 61% of those surveyed, COVID-19 was created in the laboratory.
At the same time, compared to last year, when the service conducted a similar study, this opinion has become more popular.
Last summer, 57% of Russians believed that the coronavirus was artificially created.
Only 13% of respondents today have no doubt that the virus migrated from bats to humans, according to the SuperJob study.
In addition, men are confident in the artificial origin of the infection more often than women – 65% versus 56%.
In total, 1.6 thousand representatives of the economically active population from all districts of the country took part in the survey of the service, which took place on August 4-5.
Earlier, the Russian Defense Ministry admitted the involvement of the United States in the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.
