The Lockdown Silver Linings After A Tough Year, Revealed

It seems a little brash to discuss the things we’ve enjoyed about the past year, when UK deaths from Covid-19 are among the highest in the world and thousands of families have suffered pain and bereavement.

But there have been small fortunes in lockdown – tiny silver linings, if you will – that have kept us going through the toughest days and made us rethink the way we want to live our lives post-pandemic.

In fact, more than half (54%) of the UK public say they will miss some aspects of the coronavirus restrictions, according to a new survey of almost 2,500 people.

Research by the Policy Institute at King’s College London and Ipsos Mori delves into the things that have made us smile in the past year.

Almost a third (28%) of people said they feel closer to their immediate family because of the pandemic, while 19% feel closer to their neighbours. Time with family, time at home and quieter roads were all cited as things people will miss.
