Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) has been announced by Ipsos, the worlds third largest research agency, as one of 10 Qatari organizations that proved most supportive in dealing with the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The French market research and consulting firm has recently conducted a series of in-depth studies to understand how the Coronavirus outbreak impacted the attitudes, behaviors, and future expectations of consumers and global markets.

In the MENA region, eight countries, including Qatar, were selected to track public sentiment and behavior in light of the Coronavirus outbreak.

Through online interviews, Ipsos asked nationals and residents of Qatar which companies they thought have best participated in supporting the country during the current COVID-19 crisis.

The top 10 choices were as follows (in an alphabetical order): Al-Meera, Doha Bank, Ministry of Public Health (MOPH), Ooredoo, Qatar Airways, Qatar Charity (QC), Qatar Foundation (QF), Qatar National Bank (QNB), Qatar Petroleum (QP), and QRCS.

According to the report, QRCS's successful Coronavirus control efforts were spotlighted in many research studies by Ipsos and other multinational firms concerned with the pandemic.

The surveys focused on eight criteria: positively addressing public fears and concerns; attitudes towards government, media, and health organizations; counter measures; changes in lifestyles and social behaviors; reduction of impact on citizens; changes in purchase and shopping habits; consumers expectations from companies; and short-term and long-term outcomes.
