GlobalData poll suggests sustained PPE usage by healthcare workers post-pandemic

The majority of people (59% of the total polled) want healthcare workers to continue to use personal protective equipment (PPE) at the same frequency as they are using it during the Covid-19 pandemic even after its ends, according to a GlobalData poll.

17% of those polled thought that healthcare workers should continue to use PPE after the pandemic ends, but only in the busiest parts of the hospital.

Only 10% of polled participants thought that healthcare workers should use PPE less frequently after the pandemic than they do now.
