Nearly three-quarters of Americans are feeling the pinch financially amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new Insider poll.




Various stay-at-home orders, travel restrictions, and COVID-19 outbreaks in the workplace have stalled the US economy. Nearly 17 million people have filed for unemployment in the last three weeks.




Only 25% of poll respondents say they have experienced no financial hardship and have been fairly unaffected by the coronavirus.

The novel coronavirus has swept across the US and flattened millions of American jobs in its wake.
Various stay-at-home orders, closures, travel restrictions, and COVID-19 outbreaks in the workplace have effectively stalled the US economy. Many businesses have closed their doors, with state-mandated lockdowns only allowing "essential" businesses to continue operating unless working from home is possible.
With US companies — from small businesses to major corporations — straining under various lockdown measures, millions of American workers have experienced pay cuts, furloughs, and layoffs.
