How is coronavirus affecting the general lifestyle?

A pandemic which has brought almost the entire world to a standstill, COVID-19 has brought meaningful changes to our lives. Millions of people are forced to stay at home as a big proportion of the world’s population is under lockdown. Respondents from countries like Germany, United Kingdom and the U.S. are avoiding public places while many have to cancel plans with friends and family members. Consumers in these nations are also increasingly opting for shopping online as physical markets are still closed to deal with the effects of coronavirus.

Are people getting financial help from governments?

In the U.S., UK and Germany, a wide majority of respondents who lost income as a result of coronavirus are not receiving any financial help from their governments.
