Thousands of ECHO readers responded to our survey on the current coronavirus lockdown and whether they feel rules are being followed.
Since the start of the new year, the UK has been placed in full lockdown following a worrying upsurge in coronavirus cases.
There is still no date set for when the current tough restrictions will be eased, although the numbers of people who have now received their first jab in the mass vaccination programme offers a ray hope in the battle against the pandemic.
To the question, "When should the current coronavirus lockdown end?", by majority (54%) said it should be lifted "when it is safe to do so."
In terms of specific dates, 15% said it should end now, 16% in March, 10% in April and 5% in May.

However there was also an admission that will come with a cost in terms of mental health.
When asked "Do you feel this lockdown is having a negative effect on your own or your children's mental health?" 38% of people who responded said it was affecting both, 30% said it was impacting their own mental health, 28% said neither, and 4% my child's.
In terms of your experience of people following the rules, 41% said that people they had seen were following them "To some degree", 28% said "Not enough", while 17% said No and 14% said Yes.
In answer to "What do you think when you see people not following lockdown rules – over social distancing or mask wearing for instance?", an overwhelming majority (76%) said they're totally irresponsible and should follow the rules, while 22% agreed with "It's up to them what they do."
Only one per cent said "I don't follow the rules, so they shouldn't either."
And finally, when asked what do you miss most, the majority (44%) said seeing family, followed by going on holiday and seeing friends (15% each).
