PUb-hobbyist users will need to drink 124 pints this summer to save the nation’s food and beverage industry, financial experts have said.
The industry needs a boost of £ 25.66 billion to return to pre-pandemic levels after a year of forced shutdowns that resulted in record losses.
Its website states: ‘With the latest estimates suggesting that the UK food and drink industry has lost at least £ 25.66 billion to Covid-19, we have wondered how much each person in the UK would need to spend to reach pre-pandemic levels.
“In particular, we wondered how far this money would go in pubs, one of the most besieged sectors.
“We came to a figure of 124 pints per adult, based on a figure of 52 million adults in the UK. “
Activists produced a “Your Local Pub Needs You” poster, which calls on punters to support 40,000 pubs and bars who are fighting to stay afloat.
The poster states: ‘The average pub will need each customer to spend an additional £ 382 this year to combat the impact Covid has had on the industry.
“Thanks for doing your part! “
The group called on people to drink 124 pints or 122 glasses of wine to do just that.
For those who don’t want to drink alcohol, it also suggests that people can eat 976 packets of crisps or 40 bar roast dinners. ”
“All four tests on Monday were met,” he told Sky News.
However, he stopped short of saying that the final step in easing the lockdown would take place on June 21.
The four tests for further easing restrictions are:
* The vaccine deployment program is continuing successfully.
* Evidence shows that vaccines are effective enough to reduce hospitalizations and deaths in people vaccinated.
* Infection rates are not at risk of an increase in hospitalizations which would put unbearable pressure on the NHS.
* A risk assessment is not fundamentally changed by new variants of concern.
This should include reopening some areas that remained closed last summer like nightclubs and live events.
