There is a United Kingdom survey about life after lockdown. The market research company YouGov asked 4,343 people about this. The company said people gave some surprising answers. Only nine per cent of Britons want life to return to "normal" after the pandemic is over. This means 91 per cent want life to be different. Over half of people (54%) said they hoped to change how they live their lives. The lead researcher Tom MacMillan said: "This data shows there is a real appetite for change, and for the nation to learn from this crisis."
Most people in the survey noticed big changes because of the lockdown. Just over half (51%) noticed cleaner air, and 27 per cent have seen more wildlife. This may encourage people to use cars less after the lockdown. More people may work from home. Many people (42%) said they value food more, and 38 per cent said they are cooking using recipes and not buying ready-made meals. Over 40 per cent of people said they now talk to people who live near them. Professor MacMillan said: "People are trying new things and noticing differences at home, in their work and in communities."
