IBM surveyed more than 7,000 Americans in July
The new survey reveals that the percentage of Americans who are concerned about personal and public health continues to rise.
For instance, 72% report that COVID-19 has made them more concerned about the safety and health of themselves and their families. The same percentage of respondents also said they worry about the second wave of COVID-19 later in 2020.
Only 13% of Americans think that the economy will bounce back to where it was prior to COVID-19.
At the same time, 84% of them revealed they would still like to work remotely at least occasionally.
In addition, Americans are resuming some daily activities. This way, 27% of respondents surveyed have already visited restaurants and bars.
Although, 35% don’t plan on going to shopping centers or malls this year. 66% and 64% said they wouldn’t go to an amusement park or a live sporting event this year, respectively.
We’ve reported that remote work has positively impacted productivity in terms of reducing costs of both employers and employees, lowering traffic and pollution level.
