FAST FIVE: Americans' Fear Of Catching COVID-19 Drops To Record Low: Gallup
Thirty-five percent of US adults now say they are very or somewhat worried about contracting COVID-19, the lowest point in Gallup's trend since April 2020.
Worry about contracting COVID-19 is down among almost all key segments of society since February, especially among older adults.
Those who plan to get the vaccine but have not currently done so are the most likely segment of Americans to be concerned about contracting the disease, with 49% saying so.
Positive impressions of the situation have sunk below 20% several times, including as recently as December.
A different version of this question asked in February found 38% of Americans believing the disruption would last through the first half of 2021 while 52% believed it would continue longer than that.
