Britain is expecting at least six more months of Covid Chaos: Only 7% of adult respondents now believe that life will return to normal before the summer. Data reveals.

  • ONS reports that less than 10% of Britons believe life will return to normal before spring.
  • Only 7% of adult respondents believe the country will return back to normal within six month.
  • For comparison, 28% believed that the crisis would be over in six months.

According to data, less than 10% of Britons think life will return to normal before next summer. 

The polling is done by Office for National Statistics found that only 7 percent believe pre-Covid will be restored by June.

The equivalent number was 28% when it was asked about last winter. This is just days after strict lockdown measures were put in place to deal with the second wave.

This highlights the concern Britons have over Omicron. The ministers are under increasing pressure to tighten restrictions that will stop Omicron’s rapid spread.

In the two weeks following the identification of the mutant variant, the ONS questioned more than 3000 people.

Boris Johnson also confirmed that he would use Plan B. This included work from home guidance and compulsory face masks at more locations. Also, the Covid pass is for large-scale events.   

More optimistic were the Londoners, young people and men than the northerners over 70 who were less positive about the virus’s impact on their lives in six months. 

A survey of more than 3,000 Britons by the Office for National Statistics found just seven per cent of adults believe there will be a return to normality within the next six months, a quarter of the 28 per cent of people who believed this to be the case when asked last winter

Survey of over 3,000 Britons conducted by the Office for National Statistics revealed that just 7 per cent believe in normality. This compares to 25% who said the same thing last winter.

Professor Whitty warns that the end of an endless cycle of restriction in Britain won’t come until 2023, when Britain will be free from its restrictions.

Britain could face another 18 months worth of Covid misery unless a vaccine is available that can protect against all variants, Chris Whitty today warned.

According to the chief medical officer, he anticipates that a universal vaccine capable of fighting multiple strains will be available in the middle of 2023.

He did admit that ministers would have to use social restraints if Omicron, a vaccine-resistant strain of Omicron, threatens to overthrow the health system.

Professor Whitty addressed MPs from the Health and Social Care Select Committee and stated that if I projected forward, I could anticipate in a few years, perhaps 18 months, we will have multivalent vaccines, which will cover much more people. [of variants].

“We will most likely have several antivirals… and many other countermeasures. This means that the majority and almost all the heavy lifting can be performed by medical measures when we receive a new version, unless the situation is very different. 

After Professor Chris Whitty in England, England’s chief doctor warned Britons to expect 18 more months of Covid interference with their lives, it comes.

According to him, it will take that much time for both drugs and vaccines to work together to create new versions.

There are growing concerns that there could be a lockdown or additional restrictions in England. 

The UK’s other regions are receiving stricter guidelines, including Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon advising against mixing with more than two households at a given time.

Wales’ leader Mark Drakeford also said that clubs would shut down in Wales after December 26, to deal with the’stormy Omicron.

Only seven percent of the 32776 adults who took part in the ONS survey said that they expected their lives to be normal within six months.

When asked about their perceptions of life in the six-months following December 2, 2006, and June 6, 2011, 28% felt it would.

Data showed that only nine percent (16 to 29) of those surveyed believed Covid would not have any effect on daily living within six months. 

Eight percent of men believe that life will return to normal in spring. This compares to just five percent of women.

One in 10 Londoners stated that Covid wouldn’t be an issue in their daily lives within the timeframe. This compares to only four percent of those living in North East, North West, Yorkshire, Humberside, and Yorkshire.

Just six percent of 10 respondents said that they expected a return back to normality within the next twelve-months, which is down from eight out 10 last year.

A quarter of those surveyed said they didn’t expect their lives to get back to normal.
