According to the Head of the Moscow Department of Trade and Services, Alexei Nemeryuk, the QR code system operating in Moscow when visiting restaurants and cafes can be extended to other areas. Specialists of the SuperJob job search service conducted a study and found out whether residents of the capital are ready for the new rules.
The results of the study showed that, according to 67 per cent of Muscovites, the QR-code system should not be extended to the spheres of trade and transport. Judging by the comments, the respondents are not sure about the ethics and effectiveness of such serious restrictions, as well as their compliance with the Constitution of the Russian Federation.
In turn, 16 per cent of the capital’s residents are convinced that such a measure is necessary, while 13 per cent believe that the QR code system should be introduced both in stores and in transport. Also, 2 per cent vote only for stores, and 1 per cent only for transport.
It is clarified that the idea of extending the QR code system to the transport and/or trade spheres is approved by the vaccinated expectedly more than by the Muscovites who avoid vaccination. Thus, among those who were vaccinated, 3 out of 10 people consider QR codes necessary. Among those who were not sick or vaccinated the figure is only 6 per cent; among those who were sick and did not get vaccinated, it is 9 per cent.
