Grocery and pharmacy mobility trend during COVID-19 in the UK 2020

The lockdown measures announced by the UK government in an effort to reduce the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) led to a dramatic decrease in footfall to grocery stores and pharmacies in the country, including food warehouses, farmers markets, specialty food shops, drug stores. Over the three week period between March 29 and April 17, mobility in these locations saw slight improvement. Grocery stores and pharmacies are among the "essential businesses" that are allowed to operate during the lockdown in the UK.
