As COVID-19 spreads and more and more governments implement stringent lockdown measures, one question is being raised frequently: how much longer is the pandemic going to disprupt people's lives? In the United States at least, Gallup polled 1,020 U.S. adults about expected disruption with 36 percent saying they expect the situation to last a few more weeks.
51 percent of those polled said that disruption will drag on for months while nine percent think it will last for the rest of the year. Three percent are particularly pessimistic, believing it will go on for even longer than that. 66 percent of Gallup's respondents said their daily lives have been distrupted either a great deal or a fair amount.
