10M Americans Behind on Rent, Mortgage Amid Pandemic: Survey

Roughly 10 million Americans fell behind in their rental or mortgage payments this month amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a Census Bureau-conducted survey.

Those Americans also said their household was likely to miss next month’s payment as well, CNN reported.

“To be able to understand the eviction crisis that we’re facing today, we have to recognize where we were before COVID-19 came to our country — and that was in the midst of a severe affordable housing crisis,” said Diane Yentel, president and CEO of the National Low-Income Housing Coalition, CNN reported.

The housing coalition said the U.S. has a shortage of seven million affordable rental homes.

As of Friday, the U.S. had roughly 8.9 million coronavirus cases and 229,000 related deaths, both tops globally, according to a Johns Hopkins University tracker.
