A year on from the first government instructions to significantly limit social contact because of the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic, the UK Office for National Statistics has published key data which tells us about the extraordinary past 12 months and the way our lives have changed.
It has been a year since people across the UK were told they should limit their non-essential contact with others and stop all unnecessary travel. On the 16th March 2020, people were told to work from home wherever possible while everyone was told to “avoid pubs, clubs, theatres and other such social venues”, to try to curb the spread of coronavirus.
A week later, on 23rd March 2020, the UK’s first lockdown began. From deaths and the pressure on hospitals, to the number of hours worked and people’s expectations of rising unemployment, the Office of National Statistics has published remarkable the figures recorded over the past 12 months which compared with others, made this a year like no other.
