Women are more isolated and show greater concern about the coronavirus crisis, reveals Datafolha research.
They also declare greater rejection of President Jair Bolsonaro, who on several occasions downplayed the seriousness of the pandemic.
The survey was made this Monday (27) by phone, to avoid personal contact, with 1,503 adult Brazilians with cell phones in all states of the country. The margin of error is three percentage points.
Among the interviewees, 60% say that they are only leaving home only when it is inevitable, and 20%, that they do not leave at all. Among them, the proportion is 46% and 13%, respectively.
There is also a greater share among women who think that Brazilians are less concerned than they should be with the pandemic. This perception shows 61% of the interviewees against 51% of men.
It is not by chance that they stand out again in the defense of health to the detriment of the economy at the present time, although this position is the majority in all strata of gender, age and education.
For 71% of women, the most important thing now is to keep people at home to prevent the coronavirus from spreading, even if it hurts the economy and causes unemployment. Among men, the proportion is 63%.
