A new poll shows men in the United States are less likely to follow the health guidance aimed at slowing the spread of the novel coronavirus and are less concerned about the threat of COVID-19 than women.

A Reuters-Ipsos poll taken March 18-24 of nearly 4,500 Americans found that while 72 percent of women say they have been adhering to health officials’ guidance to avoid large public gatherings to curb the spread of the virus, just 58 percent of men say they are following such guidance. Meanwhile, 54 percent of women said they are very concerned about the virus compared to just 45 percent of men.

At least 65 percent of women say they are avoiding close physical contact with others, while 56 percent of men say they are doing so, according to Reuters.
