1/3 of Brits choosing isolation over socialising in new survey

With the UK attempting to get back into its everyday routine of social interactions following the pandemic, it seems as though some aren’t ready to get back into social scenarios. A survey published by YouGov has found that as many as 1 out of 3 Brits are choosing to avoid social contact altogether. A poll asking whether people of all ages were willing to socialise as restrictions continue ease got a whopping 33% of people responding that they did not plan on seeing friends and family at all.

Only 9% said they would see or interact with friends more than twice a week. 15% of 18 to 24 year olds were willing to meet up with friends or family, with hesitancy reaching high amongst 25 to 49 year olds at 32%. 50 to 64 year olds were the most likely to avoid socialising at 42%, despite having received full vaccination. The survey, it should be noted, also comes during a time where experts are warning of a possible third COVID-19 wave due to the Delta variant.
