A majority of locked down polled Americans say if lockdown orders were lifted, they would choose to stay home or practice social distancing, according to a new poll.
A report was released on Saturday that claimed how New York state had recorded 630 more coronavirus deaths, another daily record that takes its toll to 3,565. NY city was late in locking down its citizens to the point they were dismissing COVID-19 (coronavirus).
They weren’t the only state leaders who failed their people so I can see why the people would choose to stay home and make sure their families were safe before going back out. They shouldn’t be demonized for their choice either, but we have strongly opinionated attackers on social media that will be angry at those Americans who chose family over Wall Street.
While 87% of the American public is staying home — regardless of whether or not it’s mandated by state or local municipalities — most plan on continuing to do so for all of April, according to the poll taken by the Huffington Post/YouGov survey.
Meanwhile, just 7% of Americans say they’re not sheltering in place while another 6% remain “unsure” — these citizens are most likely in North Dakota, South Dakota, Arkansas, Iowa or Nebraska — which have no stay-at-home orders in place.
Meanwhile, the survey shows 79% (versus 9%) of Americans say that the states that have issued stay-at-home orders made the right decision in doing so.
Although some residents of Kentucky (which has issued a stay-at-home order) who have been exposed to the coronavirus are refusing to quarantine — and have had to be fitted with ankle monitors to ensure they comply.
Even if restrictions were eased by mid-April, 61% of Americans would still stay at home when possible — while only 19% said they’d go back to their regular life. [NY Post]
