Adaption to changes brought on by COVID dependent on age …

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed how we all connect, but how people have adapted to these changes has varied depending on age. According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, a majority of adults under 50 say the internet has been an essential tool for them personally during the coronavirus outbreak, while about a third 65 and older said the same. Adults 30-49 were the most likely age group to turn to the internet to replace social and business encounters, with 65% reporting that the internet was essential during the outbreak.

Adults under 50 were much more likely to hold virtual gatherings, watch online concerts or live events, and participate in online fitness courses than those over 50. A total of 87% of all U.S. adults said the internet has been essential or important during the outbreak.
