Sixty-six percent of Americans are not willing to travel on a plane due to the coronavirus outbreak, a new Harris poll reveals.

The poll, provided to Axios, was taken March 17-18. The same poll taken March 14-15 showed 61% were unwilling to fly.

Here are how the results break down:

  • 58% of Americans are now unwilling to go to the gym. Just days earlier 44% would not go.
  • 56% say they are unwilling to go to a restaurant or bar, compared to 37% who had said earlier they would not go.
  • 48% say they are not willing to go to church, compared to 38% who were unwilling to go days earlier.
  • 42% are unwilling to go to their local coffee shop. Earlier 37% said they were not willing to go.
  • 17% are not willing to go the grocery store, compared to 14% who said days earlier they would not go.

Axios noted the results show Americans are taking the outbreak seriously, but are losing their sense of invulnerability.

The polls surveyed a total of 4,069 people. A margin of error was not provided.
