Three-quarters of Irish workers are concerned about contracting Covid-19 if they use public transport to get to work.

Trinity researchers also found a major shift in attitude towards working from home in the space of a year.

In 2019, just 25pc of 500 surveyed said they would strongly favour working from home up to two days a week - now that figure has jumped to 80pc.
