Home consoles: online market share during the Coronavirus outbreak in the UK 2020

The first Coronavirus case in the United Kingdom (UK) was reported in February 28, 2020. Since then the government made repetitive calls on the public to practice social distancing in an effort to stop the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19), and finally announced national lockdown on March 23, 2020, forcing many people to work from home. Over this period of time, there was an increase in online home console market share, which went from 45 percent in Week 8 to 61 percent by the end of Week 12, ending March 22, 2020, just the day before national lockdown went into effect. The largest increase in the online home console market share occurred in week 11, or March 9 to March 15, 2020, at 62 percent.
