UK businesses have reported that the cumulative impact of Covid-19 (Covid) on sales, employment and investment, relative to a counterfactual scenario in which the pandemic had not taken place, eased during 2021 as restrictions have been lifted and the economy has reopened (Chart 1). In the November survey, businesses estimated that their sales in 2021 Q4 would be 5% lower than they otherwise would have been because of Covid, with investment 8% lower and employment 2% lower.
