COVID-19: Nearly half of UK adults going through pandemic job loss are
drinking more alcohol - survey
The figures could increase further when the furlough scheme is wound
down later this year.

Nearly half of adults in the UK going through job loss are drinking more
than they would have done before the pandemic, a new survey suggests.

Research by the charity Drinkaware shows 49% of people who have been
made redundant - or are in the process of being made redundant - are
consuming more alcohol than they did before March 2020.

This is up from 38% since December, the poll of 4,000 people between 27
and 30 April showed.

The figures could be set to increase next month when the government's
furlough scheme is reduced - before it ends completely on 30 September.

Nationally drinking levels have gone up across the board, with people
consuming 20% more on average.

Two thirds (66%) who are drinking high-risk levels of alcohol, which is
more than 34 units a week for women and 50 for men, are drinking more
than they did before the pandemic.

Among parents with children under 18, 33% are drinking more than usual -
up from 24% in December - and 10% "much more".

Drinkaware is calling for alcohol harm to be included in public health
strategies, as trends showed an "increased polarisation" in drinking
habits by the end of 2020, it said.

Its evidence and impact director Annabelle Bonus added: "Our survey
shows that there are clear differences in the drinking habits across
certain groups of the UK population, signalling a clear need for
targeted action and appropriate support.

"It is concerning that the proportion of adults drinking more since the
start of the pandemic has increased from December to April and we must
ensure that people drinking more since lockdown began get the help and
support that they need if we are to reverse this trend."

The only healthy way to stop the pandemic in the U.K. and other
places is by rapidly ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) finding
out at any given moment, including even while on-line, who among us
are unwittingly contagious (i.e pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic) in
order to http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John 15:12) for them to
call their doctor and self-quarantine per their doctor in hopes of
stopping this pandemic. Thus, we're hoping for the best while
preparing for the worse-case scenario of the B.1.1.7 lineage mutations
and others like the P.1, B.1.135, B.1.351, B.1.429, B.1.525, &
B.1.617.1-3 lineage mutations combining to form hybrids that render
current COVID vaccines no longer effective.

Indeed, I am wonderfully hungry ( http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 )
and hope you, Michael, also have a healthy appetite too.

So how are you ?

So how are you ?
I am wonderfully hungry!
While wonderfully hungry in the Holy Spirit, Who causes (Deuteronomy
8:3) us to hunger, I note that you, Michael, not only don't have
COVID-19 but are rapture (Luke 17:37) ready and pray (2 Chronicles
7:14) that our Everlasting (Isaiah 9:6) Father in Heaven continues to
give us "much more" (Luke 11:13) Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23) so
that we'd have much more of His Help to always say/write that we're
"wonderfully hungry" in **all** ways including especially caring to
http://bit.ly/convince_it_forward (John 15:12 as shown by
http://bit.ly/RapidTestCOVID-19 ) with all glory (
http://bit.ly/Psalm117_ ) to GOD (aka HaShem, Elohim, Abba, DEO), in
the name (John 16:23) of LORD Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen.

Laus DEO !

Be hungrier, which really is wonderfully healthier especially for
diabetics and other heart disease patients:

http://bit.ly/HeartDocAndrewToutsHunger (Luke 6:21a) with all glory to
GOD, Who causes us to hunger (Deuteronomy 8:3) when He blesses us
right now (Luke 6:21a) thereby removing the http://HeartMDPhD.com/VAT
from around the heart
