Europe is beginning to feel coronavirus fatigue according to recent surveys which suggest people have become more relaxed about following health guidelines. Polling conducted by the WHO warned of the emotional toll the virus was having on the continent. In some places up to 60% of people are experiencing this fatigue, meaning they are less likely to follow COVID restrictions. The economic and social consequences of lockdowns across the world has driven many to ignore government advice and attempt to save their businesses or continue to live life as normal. The World Health Organisation urged people to continue following the rules and for governments to revive the fight against coronavirus. They warned that until a vaccine or effective treatment for the virus becomes widely available protective measures such as hand washing, social distancing and mask wearing are important in protecting the vulnerable. Most nations have seen their economies crippled due to the severe lockdowns which prevented businesses from operating and restricted movement between nations and regions. In the UK YouGov polling suggests that people are continuing to follow coronavirus rules, with 80% saying they follow social distancing with friends and 90% saying they use face coverings, both of which were similar responses to that expressed in July.
