A recent survey conducted by WalletHub found that 36 million Americans use online shopping as their number one way to get through social distancing. This was followed by cleaning and learning something new.

The survey also found that nearly half of the population still goes outside as least once a day while self-isolating.

It also showed that 60 percent of Americans now wear face masks and 33 percent wear gloves.

More than 200 millions Americans say they feel annoyed or angry when they see others not practicing social distancing.
