The 14 developed countries covered by the Pew survey include: the United States, South Korea, Japan, Sweden, the United Kingdom, Australia, Canada, Denmark, Italy, France, the Netherlands, Spain, Germany and Belgium.
According to the survey, 84% think that the United States has not responded to the epidemic well, only 15% think that the United States has done well in responding to the epidemic, and 37% think that China has performed well in responding to the epidemic. Overall, the majority of respondents believe that the United States has performed the worst in responding to the epidemic. The countries that have the lowest evaluation of the performance of the United States are South Korea and Denmark, which think that the proportion of respondents in the United States is not responding to the epidemic is as high as 93% and 92% respectively.
