An Ipsos MORI online survey of 18 to 75-year olds from 10 to the 13 April have found that Briton’s confidence continues to grow in the NHS’ ability to cope with those who are ill as a result of Coronavirus.

Briton’s level of concern for themselves and the country remains broadly stable over the past two weeks.

And whilst people say that they are finding it harder than they did three weeks ago to stay in touch with friends and family, and to keep entertained, some are now starting to find it easier to look after children.

Concern about the risks the coronavirus poses to yourself as an individual has remained broadly similar from two weeks ago at roughly three quarters (75% down from 78% two weeks ago).

Britons on the whole are finding it slightly less hard to stay positive about the future but as time goes on through the lockdown, they are finding it harder to stay in touch with friends and family and keep entertained.

Meanwhile, Beijing have been warned that they are under investigation and will be facing tough questions over the source of coronavirus and how it created a pandemic.

The Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab warned China on Thursday evening, that it “will not be business as usual.”

Raab said there “needs to be a very deep dive” into the facts over how the outbreak started in Wuhan, China and where, was it a laboratory or an animal from the wet market.

Raab said, “I think there absolutely needs to be a very, very deep dive after the event review of the lessons, including of the outbreak of the virus – and I don’t think we can flinch from that at all.”
