    Restrictions were appropriate at the time. They are not now.

    I can't believe 56% of people think the current government are doing a good job.

    They have been a complete disaster. Maybe people were asked if the government have done a good job since the start of the crisis?

    It'd be handy if we could see the actual questions.

    I wonder if those looking for more restrictions are thinking specifically of travel (there are still people who think that thousands of tourists are arriving here daily, spreading their "foreign Covid"!)

    As El Sueno said, would be good to see what they were actually asked in the survey.

    "More restrictions" means anything you want it to. Lockdown? Proper enforcement of quarantine? Limits on how much alcohol is sold to one person. No hand sanitizer below x% allowed in shops? The list is endless.

    The government doing a good job genuinely baffles me. I don't have any political affiliations but I think this new government is doing a poor job. I wish they weren't but that's my perception. Communication is poor, messaging is mixed and they've lost momentum. Admittedly it's harder to deal with Covid post-lockdown but they're not helping themselves.

    Who did they poll? My guess is NPHET and FF politicians.
