Contracting COVID — Public Worry Sees Huge Drop


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
