Americans are more concerned about their personal safety when it comes to the coronavirus, but they’re regaining confidence in the U.S. public health system to tackle the disease.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 84% of American Adults are now concerned personally about the coronavirus threat, with 49% who are Very Concerned. This compares to 65% and 33% just two weeks ago. Only 14% are not very or Not At All Concerned personally about the virus. (To see survey question wording, click here.)
