There is a survey about life after lockdown. A market research company asked 4,343 people about this. The answers were surprising. Nine per cent of people want life to return to "normal" after the pandemic is over. Over half of people (54%) said they want to change how they live. The lead researcher said: "This data shows there is a real [desire] for change, and for the nation to learn from this crisis."

Most people noticed big changes because of the lockdown. Just over half (51%) noticed cleaner air, and 27 per cent have seen more wildlife. People may use cars less after the lockdown and more people may work from home. Many people now value food more and are cooking and not buying ready-made meals. The researcher said: "People are trying new things and noticing differences at home, in their work and in communities."
