After leaving Walter Reed Medical Center yesterday, President Trump had a positive message for the American people after the first few days of his experience with Covid-19: “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life.”

As survey data from YouGov shows though, the majority of American adults fear contracting Covid-19 to some degree – either “Very” or “Somewhat”. This figure has been above fifty percent almost constantly since the end of March.

This chart shows the share of U.S. adults that say they are scared to some degree of contracting Covid-19.
