Strangely, before both the second and third influxes of the pandemic, the numbers steadily expanded and plunged again prior to building up some decent momentum.
For example, the level of individuals who got back to office in April 2020 was 3%, which bit by bit expanded to 17% in March 2021 (beginning of the subsequent wave) and plunged to 7% in May 2021 (finish of the subsequent wave).
