With mask requirements falling away like those of attendees at a masquerade ball at the end of the night, we also find the number of people worrying about catching COVID decreasing significantly, too.
A recent poll by Gallup said we’re all much less concerned about the pandemic and just 34% of us are worried about catching COVID. That’s down from 50% in January of this year. It’s the most optimistic we’ve been since June of last year when 89% of those surveyed thought things were improving.
Here are the latest poll figures:
63% of us think things with the pandemic are improving
46% say its getting worse
25% believe it has stayed the same
This is what we thought in January:
58% thought the pandemic was getting worse
20% saw it getting better
22% called things the same
As for the future:
55% are still concerned about COVID variants in the future
66% expect the pandemic to continue through the end of 2022 and beyond
50% are concerned about people who aren’t vaccinated
