Surveys in six industrialized countries showed that Covid-19 vaccine readiness attitude increased compared to last year, with the highest rate in the UK.

International consulting firm KekstCNC today released the results of a survey conducted last month showing that a growing number of people in the UK, US and even in countries with vaccine skepticism like France, endorsed the idea of vaccination

"As vaccine rollouts begin, the number of people saying they will be vaccinated is increasing in all countries," the study said.

The highest vaccine approval rate was recorded in the UK at 89%, up from 70% in December. In Sweden, it was 76% compared with 53% in December;

The French surveyed were least enthusiastic, but the positive opinion about the vaccine still increased, reaching 59% from 40% in December.

Meanwhile, some have also criticized the rollout of the Covid-19 vaccine.

People in all six countries surveyed rated Israel and the UK that deployed the world's best Covid-19 vaccine.

Covid-19 has killed more than 2.5 million people since its first appearance in China in December 2019.
