Europeans are split over just how long the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) will continue to have an impact on Europe. Consumers in Greece, Russia, France and Spain are more optimistic that things will rebalance in less than three months, while consumers in Germany, the Netherlands, U.K., Turkey and Ireland aren’t so sure. These findings come from a new Nielsen survey of consumers from 29 countries across Europe who were asked how long they think it will last. The majority of Europeans believe the impact of COVID-19 is here to stay for the next 12 months, signalling that some of the major changes we’ve seen in the consumer and retail environment will stick around as well.
