Nearly half of Americans say they’ve established social “bubbles” of people they can trust to follow the rules for minimizing the risk of spreading the coronavirus, according to the latest installment of the Axios-Ipsos Coronavirus Index.

47% of Americans said they’ve established social bubbles, including:

  • 51% of women.
  • 50% of suburban residents.
  • 54% of Americans age 65 and older.
  • 51% of Americans with a bachelor’s degree or higher.

It is most common in the suburbs and among women, older adults and people with college educations.

This is happening as 46% of Americans say they know someone who has tested positive for the coronavirus.

To put that in perspective, only 4% of Americans knew someone who had tested positive when this survey began in mid-March.

And 18% say they know someone who has died from it — the highest share since Ipsos began asking the question in late April. Read the rest at Axios.
