The coronavirus lockdown has brought unprecedented changes to our lives – but it has been essential in suppressing the spread of Covid-19.
Without it, our already high death rate would undoubtedly be higher – and our NHS could have become overwhelmed.
However, while people have for the most part understood the measures and restrictions and have willingly complied, there has been a growing feeling recently that some want the lockdown lifted.
In particular, business figures have been arguing that it is time some – or even all – restrictions were lifted.
This flies in the face of public polling which has showed that most people back continuing the lockdown.
That’s why we are asking: is it time the lockdown was lifted?
