62 percent of Americans approve of the work that President Joe Biden has done to fight the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a poll published by ‘The Washington Post’ and ABC.
For their part, 31 percent of the survey participants disapprove of Biden’s handling of the pandemic, while 7 percent do not have an opinion on it.
The percentages vary drastically according to the ideology of the respondents. Thus, 95 percent of Democrats approve of the work carried out by the president, while 33 percent of Republicans do.
The survey also shows that doubts about the COVID-19 vaccine in those who identify as Republicans remain. Specifically, it has revealed that three out of ten Americans surveyed state that they “probably” will not be vaccinated. Twenty percent of them say they “definitely” won’t.
68 percent of work participants who identify as Democrats have indicated having received at least one dose of the disease vaccine, a percentage that stays at 45 percent when it comes to Republicans. Additionally, 6 percent of Democrats say they probably won’t get the vaccine, and 47 percent of Republicans say the same.
The survey is published as part of the call by the Biden Administration and state and local governments for citizens to go to get vaccinated against the disease. The United States has experienced a notable decrease in daily infections and deaths from the disease, but variants of SARS-CoV-2 threaten what has been achieved in this regard.
The delta variant, found in India, has spread in some states, such as Missouri, Arkansas, Nevada, Colorado and Utah, while the main person in charge of the fight against COVID-19 in the United States, Anthony Fauci, has warned that the variant represents a “great threat” to control the spread of the virus.
In this sense, charges from the Biden Government have also been expressed, which have warned that unvaccinated people have a greater risk of contracting a variant of the virus and developing a serious disease, The Hill recalled.
So far, the United States, the country in the world hardest hit by the pandemic, has counted more than 33.7 million people infected, including more than 605,000 fatalities due to COVID-19.
