Most Americans Know Someone Who’s Had COVID-19: Poll

Most American adults know someone who has had the coronavirus, according to a recent poll.

Data from an NBC News/SurveyMonkey Weekly Tracking Poll showed 68 percent of adults know someone who has been afflicted with the virus since December while 31 percent reported not knowing anyone with the illness, NBC News reported Tuesday.

The survey said 34 percent of adults say they or someone in their household has been tested for COVID-19 in the past month while 64 percent say no one in their home has undergone testing.

NBC reported while older adults are more at risk for symptoms from the coronavirus, little age difference across demographic lines takes place when people were asked whether they know someone who had contracted the virus.

Sixty-five percent of adults ages 18 to 34 know someone who contracted the virus, 71 percent of Americans age 35 to 64 have the same response and, in the most at-risk category, 65 and older, 63 percent say they know someone who has been diagnosed, NBC reported.

As of Tuesday, the U.S. has roughly 8.7 million coronavirus cases and 226,000 related deaths, both tops globally, according to the Johns Hopkins tracker.
