Supplementary notes

Original question: To what extent, if at all, would you support or oppose of the following measures? The government should ban any travel to and from affected countries.

The sample consists of approximately 1000+ individuals in each country. The samples can be taken as representative of the general adult population under the age of 75 with the exception of Russia. The sample in Russia is more urban, more educated and/or more affluent than the general population and should be viewed as reflecting the views of the more “connected” segment of the population.

Results do not add to 100 percent. The remainder of the sample is in the middle category of neither agree nor disagree or don't know.
