Thirty-six percent of Americans say they know someone outside of their immediate family or workplace who has been sick with the coronavirus, according to a poll by the Democracy Fund + UCLA Nationscape Project.

The number is more than triple the 11% who said in mid-March that they knew someone with COVID-19.

The Nationscape Insights analysis is a project of Democracy Fund, UCLA and USA Today.

The results, published Friday by USA Today, break down like this:

  • 8% say that a member of their immediate family has been sick with coronavirus, compared to just 3% who said so in March.
  • 17% say that someone in their workplace has been sick with the virus, compared to 6% who said so in March.

"There's just a much larger percentage of people today who are saying, 'This is impacting me and my personal family,'" said Robert Griffin, research director for the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group.

The poll, conducted the week of June 25, surveyed 6,416 people. The margin of error is plus or minus 2.1 percentage points.
