Who is Paying Attention to COVID-19 News

Covid-19 virusPew Research Center has recently completed and publish research to determine how closely Americans are following COVID-19 news and whether that is changing over time. From mid-March to near the end of the month, Pew looked at how strong our interest is in COVID-19 news, whether that interest is continuing and who is most following it. Their research has shown our interest continues over time to remain at quite high levels, about 92%. It continues to grow as the news is changing. Not surprisingly, those paying the greatest attention are 65 and older, while those paying the least attention are 18-29. Still, a high level of interest in COVID-19 news is seen in all groups and is expanding in the ages of 30-64.
