Nearly, 77 per cent people intend to use Arogya Setu app and more than 57 per cent will maintain social distancing and washing and sanitizing hands at regular intervals as a significant change in social behaviour even after the end of the pandemic.

“Almost 80 per cent of respondents considered the non-availability of alcohol and cigarettes as one of the major benefits, and 74 per cent considered work from home advantage and not a disadvantage,” the survey said.
