There has been no estimate made of the number of people on furlough continuously from 1 March 2020.

The Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme (CJRS) was announced on 20 March 2020 and the number of jobs on furlough increased substantially after that date.

HMRC has published statistics on the CJRS, the latest release being published on 9 September 2021. The statistics include figures on the number of employments supported since the scheme started in March 2020. These statistics can be found on GOV.UK: https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/coronavirus-job-retention-scheme-statistics-9-september-2021.
