Navigating The COVID-19 Pandemic

The Navigating The COVID-19 Pandemic, Life On Lockdown brief is the second in a series of PYMNTS studies centered on how the COVID-19 pandemic is impacting lives of U.S. consumers. The second survey in our series analyzes survey responses collected from a census-balanced panel of 1,923 consumers, focusing on how consumers’ concern about the pandemic and their trust in the government and media’s depiction thereof shifted during the 12 days since our first study on March 6.

Inside the March 17 study:

  • 71.7 percent: Share of consumers who are concerned they might get their friends and family sick
  • 25.5 percent: Portion of consumers who believe that government coverage was making the pandemic look either “somewhat” or “much” better than it was
  • 59.4 percent: Share of consumers who believe they would be able to resume their prepandemic activities in three months or less
