An Ipsos MORI poll, carried out online among 18-75 year olds between 27-30 March, has shown that 56% of people believe that the Government enforcement of social distancing measures were taken too late, whilst only 4% of people felt that they were taken too soon.

The Government enforcement has been effective though with 79% of people now saying they are avoiding leaving their homes up from only 50% before the Government’s lockdown last week.

Kelly Beaver, MD Public Affairs at Ipsos MORI said, “It is very encouraging to see that four in five people are now avoiding leaving their home following the Government’s enforcement of this last week.

“While the majority of people feel it came too late, the impact it has had on people’s behaviour is critical at a time when we all need to be doing our part.”
