Pew Research Center's latest survey carried across 14 countries of the world shows that China is suffering from a terrible image problem. The pandemic, which originated in China, has done huge damage to its reputation. President Xi Jinping, too, is much disliked in these countries in a big way.

Journalist Aarti Tikoo Singh, analyzing the survey, says that three in four citizens in over a dozen first-world countries in the world dislike China. She adds that about 10% of the world's population has contracted Wuhan’s coronavirus, thanks to the Chinese Communist Party.

Here are some major highlights of the survey:

Across the 14 nations surveyed, a median of 61% say China has done a bad job dealing with the outbreak.

A median of 78% say they have not too much or no confidence in Xi Jinping to do the right thing regarding world affairs.

But there is a positive for China: When it comes to perceptions of economic strength, China fares relatively well in the survey.

Xi Jinping is not alone in being disliked globally. Even as concerns about Xi rise, in most countries, more have faith in President Xi than in President Trump," the Pew report says.
