Steps to reproduce

A Hungarian survey based on 15 questions: I think that the coronavirus is a very serious threat to the society. The coronavirus worries me. I agree with all the preventive measures introduced by the government. The ratio of social panic to real danger is too high. I think the epidemic will last for a long time. I think the virus was artificially produced. I can live a completely normal life despite the preventive measures against COVID-19. The risk of viral infection in Hungary is lower than in other countries. When I go out, I keep a distance of one to two meters from other people. The face mask protects against the infection. I fully comply with the measures of the government to stay at home. I am not worried, because there will be a vaccine against the coronavirus soon. The media is not telling the whole truth about the coronavirus. I don't feel threatened by the coronavirus.* The national medical care is adequate to save those who can be saved.
