Mr Johnson announced the lockdown on March 23 forcing people to stay in their homes for seven weeks in order to control the deadly virus, and stop the NHS from being overwhelmed. With restrictions largely lifted, the Prime Minister has warned strict rules may be reintroduced if the number of cases begins to rise rapidly. In light of Mr Johnson’s concerns, Express.co.uk asked: “Would you support second mass lockdown in bid to stop second wave?”

In response to today’s poll, 2,045 out of 3,473 (58 percent) said they would not support a second nationwide lockdown.

In contrast, 1,389 (41 percent) voted insisting they would support a second lockdown while just 39 (one percent) were not sure.

Responding to the poll, one person insisted the country would not support a second lockdown after experiencing the first.

They said: “If they think the country will swallow that rubbish again they're in for a shock. No, No, No.”

Another expressed their fear over how a second lockdown would hit the economy.

They said: “So they didn't manage to completely wreck the economy last time and would like a second bite at the cherry?

“I worked throughout the last lockdown without so much as a sniffle and I will no doubt do the same if there is another!

“This virus is not to be feared unless you have a weak immune system and comorbidities.”
