(The Center Square) - Some 44 percent of Americans say they cannot afford another year like 2020, according to a recent survey by WalletHub, as the country enters a second year of dealing with the coronavirus pandemic.

"Financially, 2020 was such a difficult year that roughly 145 million Americans cannot afford another year like it," according to Jill Gonzalez, a WalletHub financial analyst. "Luckily, the U.S. is rolling out the COVID-19 vaccine, which will help conditions in the country approach normalcy more and more in the coming months."
