New data from the Annenberg Public Policy Center found that 4 in 10 Americans have returned to their normal, pre-pandemic lives. Over half of respondents say they rarely or never wear masks indoors while in public. This, despite 54% of Americans indicating they personally know someone who has died from Covid-19. A third say they know someone with “Long Covid.”
How will these perceptions – alongside the continued loosening of public safety restrictions – affect the future health of Americans? In this episode of Coronavirus: The Truth, Jeremy Corr and Dr. Robert Pearl examine both the science and public opinion of Covid-19.
