COVID-19 Recovery Tracker update

ORIMA Research has just released the most recent update from their COVID-19 Recovery Tracker (CRT) project – based on data up to 30 October. 

ORIMA Research is tracking the size and consistency of the COVID-19 impact across the Australian community now, and into the recovery phase to come, with their COVID-19 Tracker (CRT).

Key results from October:

  • Despite the easing of the Victorian ‘second-wave’ and restrictions at the end of October, nationally the perception of easing negative impact has been slow since August
  • In Victoria, as the state navigated the last phase of lockdowns, perceptions of negative personal impact actually intensified rather than eased.  Differences between states are continuing to widen.
  • In October, younger Australians felt a greater sense of negative personal impact, but a lower sense of negative national impact.
  • Nearly 1-in-5 Australians (18%) now know of at least one person who has been diagnosed with COVID, though less that 7% know someone close to them who has.
  • The proportion reporting their mental health being negatively affected has reduced from a peak in August, but this remains the most widespread personal experience of COVID.
