Coronavirus: fifth of disabled people will not leave their homes until a vaccine is found

By July 16, 2020National News

From the Independent 

A fifth of disabled people say they will not leave home until a vaccine for coronavirus is developed, a new survey has found. 

Disability charity Scope conducted a survey of 1,115 adults with a health problem or disability in the UK between 8 and 10 July to learn more about how they feel over the lifting of shielding measures.  

The results showed that half of disabled people feel anxious about shielding advice being paused on 1 August, which states that clinically vulnerable people will no longer be advised to shield and will be able to visit shops, places of worship and return to their workplace.
