Most of the respondents have supported the State of Alarm. Now that it has been wound up, they intend to uphold the pandemic protocols set by it on a voluntary basis. The minority, who were not in favor, call the State of Alarm unnecessary when not illegal, "an instrument to allow corrupt politicians and the Ibex 35 to do what they want with us."

We wouldn’t be here now, out on our first true taste of sunshine and the soft breeze of spring, without the healthcare workers who have put their own lives on the line so we could live. Their heroism is breathtaking. We’ve lived by the rules so that we all could live even though some of us hadn’t been able to make it. And we grieve for them.
