The writing is on the wall.
Americans can see that the way in which Trump handled the situation has taken them closer to the grave.
Just as fear over the spread of the coronavirus has gripped the nation, so too has speculation over the level of precaution people should be taking since President Donald Trump declared a national emergency. Many families are hunkering down during this unsettling period, heeding suggestions by experts to practice “social distancing” and avoiding unnecessary contact with others. Still, some believe such practices are extreme measures and don’t see the need to entirely uproot their daily lives. Now, a survey on the matter conducted over the weekend by StudyFinds reveals that about one in five Americans believe they’ll catch the virus eventually, and a third admit having some fear about leaving their own home.
The survey of 502 people at least 18 years old shows that fear and panic doesn’t seem to be completely overtaking most households, but plenty of Americans are worried. In all, 19% of respondents think they’ll be diagnosed with coronavirus at some point.
Interestingly, nearly one in ten (9%) people went as far to admit they believe they have coronavirus right now. But younger adults seem to be more worried. Of the 275 participants who shared which age bracket they fall into, a stunning 20% of respondents ages 18-29 and 18% of those 30-45 think they’ve already contracted the virus. That’s compared to 9% of adults 45-60 and just 3% of those 60 and older.
Meanwhile, despite the hysteria, 14% of Americans aren’t concerned at all about contracting the coronavirus. Conversely, 20% of respondents are “very concerned,” while 31% are “somewhat concerned.” Another 34% feel “a little concerned.”
Even though most Americans harbor some level of worry, 45% of respondents haven’t reached the point where they’re afraid to leave their homes. About a third (34%) are “a little afraid” and 15% are “somewhat afraid” to venture out. Just 5% of adults admit they’re “very afraid” of leaving home.
When it comes to feelings about the government’s response to the coronavirus pandemic, overall more than a quarter (27%) of respondents are not satisfied at all. Among the 275 respondents who shared their age bracket, that number balloons to 45% for both the youngest and oldest segments. Similarly, 28% of respondents are “very satisfied” with the Trump administration’s handling of the crisis, but that figure drops to just 14% for adults over 60.
As for when Americans believe society will finally return to “normal,” respondents overwhelmingly agreed by the end of 2020. Seventeen percent even believe that will occur within a month from now. More than half (56%) feel life will get back to its old ways within three to six months, and 11.5% think it will take until the end of the year for everything to go back to normal.
Another 15% of respondents are much less optimistic: 8% don’t see society recovering until sometime after 2020, and 7% don’t believe life will ever be the same again.
Things will never be the same.
Even if some people survive this pandemic, the whole globalism and cosmopolitanism things have proven to be ticking time bombs.
Modernity is a death trap.
People will either stop this open borders madness or eventually succumb to some random virus coming from the opposite corner of the world.
