Unsurprisingly, given their optimism levels, China had the most people expecting a return to normality within a month, at 29% of respondents.
Looking across the board, every country, no matter how optimistic, had 3-6 months as the most popular answer. On average, 41% of respondents picked this timeframe.
A lot of people around the world think it’ll be more than a year before we’re back to how things were – at least 40% of respondents from the UK, Italy, Australia, and Germany fall into this category.
Meanwhile, on average, 9% of respondents think we’ll never get back to normal. With many out of work and health systems struggling the world over, this is no surprise. Covid-19 has changed so much in such a short time, and it seems reasonable that some things will never be the same again.
