Citizens' patience with the federal government's corona policy is dwindling.

This is shown by a survey by the credit agency Schufa for WELT AM SONNTAG.

Accordingly, with 63 percent, a majority of Germans still consider the measures to be appropriate - in November it was 69 percent, in September 73 percent.

At the same time, Germans are increasingly concerned about the economic consequences.

The desire to relax has therefore increased - from 43 percent of those surveyed in November to 59 percent.

Politicians feel how the approval for their measures is waning.

This is another reason why some prime ministers insisted on sketching opening scenarios before the next federal-state round on Wednesday.

New self-tests, faster vaccinations - these are the hopes that promise the easing of the corona restrictions soon.


However, the federal government itself is nowhere near that far and is trying to dampen expectations.

"I recommend us all the greatest possible care and caution," said Federal Health Minister Jens Spahn (CDU) on Friday.

Even if citizens' approval of the corona policy is falling, most of them are largely adhering to the guidelines.

A large majority of 95 percent in the Schufa survey stated that they would comply with the corona regulations of the respective federal state.

Only among the younger ones is the discipline not quite as pronounced.

Around one in eight between 18 and 25 years of age “tend not” or “not at all” to the applicable rules.


The majority of the citizens seem to trust the promises of quick vaccination offers.

The current developments in the vaccination campaign give 60 percent of those questioned hope that the measures will soon be relaxed.

69 percent of people wanted to get vaccinated as soon as they had the opportunity.

For its representative survey, Schufa polled 1001 people between February 11th and 25th.
