The Office for National Statistics has today released stats that show that people are more worried about losing their jobs, but also happier to visit pubs and restaurants.
- 4 in 10 adults (40%) said they would feel comfortable or very comfortable eating indoors at a restaurant this week, an increase from 37% last week, and 34% the week before.
- Of those adults who had left their homes this week, almost 3 in 10 (28%) said they had visited a café, pub or restaurant, an increase from 10% four weeks ago (period covering 8 July to 12 July 2020).
- 4 in 10 adults (40%) reported that the coronavirus was affecting their well-being this week; of these adults, 18% reported that they were worried about a possible job loss – an increase from 14% last week.
The survey took place between Wednesday 5 August and 9 August 2020 – so just after the Eat Out To Help Out scheme began.
