According to the Guardian, an overwhelming number of Britons believe that relaxing stay-at-home orders in their country would be a major mistake.

“We have been given strict behavioural advice for more than five weeks, and when that is removed people will feel pressured, and individuals who had pre-existing anxiety, particularly about their health, will be worst hit. It will take quite a lot of psychological treatment to get over this.

“Different groups will be more affected than others, in particular the elderly and also parents, who will worry about their children bringing home the virus from schools.”
