Today, the Russian authorities announced that those who do not want to get vaccinated will have limited job opportunities, will not be able to work in many jobs and are likely to be discriminated against.
Dmitry Peskov said: “The reality is that such discrimination will inevitably occur. People without vaccinations and immunity will not be able to work everywhere. It’s impossible. It will be a threat to others. “
President Vladimir Putin warned on Monday June 21 that the coronavirus situation in some regions of Russia was worsening. Therefore, the authorities began to promote the idea of mass, and often mandatory vaccinations in order to try to stop the increase in new cases.
Russia today announced 546 deaths, the highest daily rate since February. 16,715 new cases of COVID-19 have been reported in the past 24 hours. The culprit behind the sharp deterioration in the epidemiological situation is the Indian strain Delta.
The authorities are using the carrot-and-stick method in an attempt to contain the spread of coronavirus with active vaccinations – from the opportunity to win real estate or a car by those who have been vaccinated to warn refuseniks about the risk of losing their jobs due to dismissal.
At the same time, security measures are being tightened. The mayor of the Russian capital, Sergei Sobyanin, said today that from June 28, restaurants and cafes will be able to be visited only by those who prove the presence of vaccination or previous illness, or present a negative result of a molecular test made within the last three days.
According to APE-MPE, Moscow restaurants are obliged to urgently create a system for checking the QR codes of vaccinated. If this requirement is not met, catering establishments will be able to serve visitors only for take away or with delivery of the order.
