A waiter wearing protective gloves as well as a mask takes an order via customers at a restaurant on Pier 39 in San Francisco, California, U.S., on Monday, June 22, 2020. California’s fresh cases rose by a record as well as Florida infections jumped more than the weekly average, more signs of a possible resurgence of coronavirus in U.S. Sun Belt states.

(Bloomberg) — Americans are downbeat as coronavirus cases spike in many states as well as the economy can be mired in recession, a fresh CBS poll shows.

Only 5% said things in America are going “very well,” against 40% who said they’re going “very badly,” according to the survey, taken June 23-26. Another 19% said things were “somewhat well” as well as 36% said “somewhat badly.”

Most Americans said in which, as they look back a few months, the Trump administration wasn’t ready to deal with the coronavirus outbreak when the idea started off in early 2020, according to a CBS News poll.

Some 72% judged the administration “unprepared” against 28% who said the idea was “prepared.”

The poll results were released on a day when U.S. virus cases have exceeded 2.5 million, as well as deaths are over 125,000, in both cases the entire world’s highest. The U.S. has set records in which week for daily cases, a contrast to European countries in which have almost stamped out Covid-19 for right now. Administration officials tie rising cases to increased testing. Health experts disagree.

Almost half, 49%, said the virus outbreak would likely get worse over the summer. The remainder was split between those who think the idea will get better as well as those who expect the idea to stay about the same.

Face Masks

The CBS poll said assessments of how President Donald Trump has handled the virus outbreak continue to slip, to 41% right now via 47% in mid-April as well as 53% in late March.

the idea also showed in which wearing a face mask in public, recommended by most public health officials as a way to slow the spread of Covid-19, has become partisan, with Republicans less inclined to don a mask.

The people surveyed said they trusted their gut on the mask issue more than anything: Of those who use masks, 86% said they were guided by “their own assessments.” Of those, 78% also said they took the word of medical as well as health professionals as well as 24% said they followed Trump’s guidance.

The survey of 2,009 U.S. adult residents was conducted for CBS by YouGov as well as had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.6 percentage points.
