COVID-19 Global Impact Study

Surveying the Premise Global Contributor Network to gauge awareness and economic impact of the Coronavirus epidemic

With the rapid spread of COVID-19, our team felt that we could help organizations have a better understanding of what people around the world were thinking, feeling and seeing in regard to the spread of the virus. We have begun deploying taskings through the Premise app to our global network of over 1.6 million users in over 90 countries.

COVID-19 Perceptions From The Gulf And Levant Countries

As the novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continues to spread across the globe, it has not impacted Middle Eastern countries as harshly as some Western countries. As of April 3rd, 2020, there have been 9,101 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the Middle East where we have active contributor networks. Due to health and economic reasons, there is a high likelihood that the region could be severely impacted. Civil war continues to embroil Yemen while the humanitarian crisis on the borders of Jordan and Iraq does not have an end in sight. Meanwhile, the petro-states in the Gulf have seen the global price of oil plunge since January, part of a global sell-off in stocks and an overall decline in the global economy.

Premise has been collecting responses about COVID-19 from our global network of contributors since mid-March 2020. This blog post will examine data sourced from sentiment surveys focusing on government response, information and messaging, and economic impact of COVID-19 from respondents in the Middle East. We will then examine the responses from the Gulf countries (Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, Yemen) compared to those of the Levant countries (Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Palestine) and Egypt. The data presented shows similarities in sentiment toward the government response and messaging towards COVID-19, as well as differences in economic impact and levels of concern about community spread in the region.

Sentiment Toward Government Response to COVID-19
Respondents from the Gulf countries show high levels of agreement, with nearly 50% of respondents strongly agreeing with the level of response from their government. An example of a strong government response can be found in the United Arab Emirates where they have conducted over 220,000 COVID-19 tests and have been one of five countries worldwide to have established drive-through testing clinics that can produce results in as little as 24-hours.

Our company has experience delivering information on a range of topics, including disease monitoring and control. In Colombia, Premise helped to digitize vector control for the Zika virus in Santa Marta, Cucuta and Cali. Working alongside local health authorities Premise’s crowdsourced network identified and monitored mosquito breeding sites across the three cities, as well as reported on cases of Zika. Through the data collection process, city officials were better able to deploy resources to mitigate breeding sites and develop educational campaigns.
