new survey reinforces the fact that many Americans' fears of contracting Covid-19 at a hospital are keeping them from seeking essential care. The new survey, conducted by the Society for Cardiovascular Angiography & Interventions, included responses from around 1,000 U.S. adults over the age of 30. It found that 36% of respondents view going to the hospital as risky behavior, which is higher than the number who view going to a salon as risky (27%) and those who would reconsider going to the beach (16%). Asked further about going to a hospital, 61% said they felt they were somewhat or very likely to acquire Covid-19 there. Half of respondents said they were more afraid of contracting the infection than they were of experiencing a heart attack or stroke, while nearly 60% said the same about a family member.
