Only 9% of Britons want life to return to ‘normal’ once coronavirus lockdown is over

April 17, 2020

A survey has suggested that only 9% of Britons want life to return to "normal" after the coronavirus outbreak is over.

More than half of 4,343 people who took part in a YouGov poll hope they will make some changes in their own lives and for the country as a whole to learn from the crisis.

And 42% of participants said they value food and other essentials more since the pandemic.

The survey found that 61% of people are spending less money and 51% noticed cleaner air outdoors, while 27% think there is more wildlife.

Two-fifths said there is a stronger sense of community in their area since the outbreak began and 39% say they are catching up with friends and family more.
