During the COVID-19 pandemic, Americans‘ opinions on a variety of health and social issues have shifted, according to new research led by Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. An analysis of 18 polls conducted during 2020 found that confidence in U.S. health care increased during the pandemic. In 2019, only 36% of survey respondents reported that they were confident in the U.S. health system, but that number jumped to 51% in 2020.
