Sino-Singapore Jingwei, April 1st (Zhang Zhihan and Sun Qingyang) On the evening of the 30th, Shanghai announced the adoption of global static management.

Previously, a supermarket in Shanghai was fined for charging high delivery fees.

Under the epidemic, are Shanghai residents still encountering "difficulty in buying food" and "high-priced food"?

What should the elderly do if it is inconvenient to purchase?

Test one's luck by "grabbing vegetables"

  On the 30th, Shanghai announced to adopt comprehensive prevention and control measures such as global static management, nucleic acid screening of all employees, comprehensive flow investigation and investigation, and national cleaning and sterilization, so as to achieve social zero as soon as possible.

  How is life after global static management?

A Shanghai resident, Mr. Li, told the Sino-Singapore Jingwei Research Institute that the property of the community where he lives has made some adjustments to the entrance and exit of the community, strengthened the management of personnel access, and made arrangements for nucleic acid and antigen self-tests as required.

Working from home is mainly through social software and remote conference collaboration, which is basically a very smooth online communication mode.

  Regarding the rising price of vegetables, he said, "The price of vegetables must have risen, but it is within an understandable range. The price of vegetables is mainly due to insufficient transportation capacity, and many merchants are also out of stock, and it is more difficult to obtain online platforms. Managed residents will bring greater difficulties. In fact, the supply of goods offline is still relatively sufficient.”

  Another Mr. Yu, who lives in Pudong District, Shanghai, told the Sino-Singapore Jingwei Research Institute that he has been quarantined at home for 13 days. Most of the surrounding communities have confirmed cases, and the population density of his community is not high. So far, the nucleic acid test has not been positive.

  "During this period of time, the first thing I did when I woke up every day was to grab food from platforms such as Hema, Meituan, Ele.me, etc. to test my luck today." He added that many street communities have already begun to distribute food. Vegetable bags and community group buying channels have gradually become smoother, and the problem of supply shortages is generally not big.

Relatives and friends around me did not reflect the problem of "high-priced dishes".

No longer "difficult to buy food"

  Previously, due to the closure and isolation of many communities, the phenomenon of "no food to eat" for some elderly people because they could not buy vegetables online attracted attention.

In other parts of the community, the elderly appear to occupy other people's food.

  In this regard, Shi Shusi, a financial commentator, said to the Sino-Singapore Jingwei Research Institute, "To fight the epidemic at the least cost, especially the basic life of the residents should be guaranteed, and social resources and local capable subjects should be fully mobilized to help the difficult and vulnerable groups. ."

  At present, community workers and volunteers in many places in Shanghai have begun to provide grocery shopping services for the elderly.

At the same time, many large supermarkets in Shanghai have responded positively to serve elderly citizens.

Zhu Jun, senior vice president of Walmart China and chief operating officer of hypermarkets, said that all offline stores of Shanghai Walmart Supermarket will open half an hour earlier to open a special caring shopping session to ease the difficulty of shopping for the elderly and those with disabilities.

  RT-Mart Shanghai stores have opened up multiple manual cashier channels. For the elderly who have inconvenient legs and feet and are inconvenient to go out, exclusive customer service is set up in the store community to serve them.

  "The phenomenon of 'difficult to buy vegetables' suggests that supermarkets should set up plans to deal with emergencies during the epidemic," Fu Yifu, a senior researcher at Xingtu Financial Research Institute, suggested that supermarkets should expand supplier channels on the one hand, and improve digitalization on the other hand. To ensure the smooth operation of the supply chain, set up mechanisms such as out-of-stock early warning, develop a pre-warehouse model, and guide customers to place orders online and deliver them nearby.

  Recently, some supermarkets in Shanghai have also charged high delivery fees.

According to the Shanghai Market Supervision Bureau, several of Century Hualian’s franchised stores have adjusted the calculation method of online delivery fees on a certain platform APP under the condition that the prices of delivery sales remain unchanged, greatly reducing the original delivery fee of about 15 yuan per order. Increase, the highest increase is more than ten times.

The regulatory authorities have taken top-level fines and other measures against relevant stores.

  At present, the epidemic prevention and control situation in some places is severe, and people's livelihood protection is very important, which requires the joint efforts of all parties.

Consumers have memories, and those businesses that "take advantage of the epidemic" are bound to be blacklisted by consumers.

As netizens said, "This kind of store will not be patronized after the epidemic."
