The author often takes the bus. Recently, I have encountered several cases where the elderly were refused to take the bus because they could not scan the place code.

I saw a few days ago that an old lady in her late 80s failed to get on the bus after nearly a quarter of an hour of hard work.

  During this process, the old lady scanned the code over and over again, but she couldn't scan it.

Seeing this, the passengers in the car also went to help the old lady, but they didn't clean it out.

I don't know if there was a problem with the old man's mobile phone, or if the network was out of order at the time.

The old lady has repeatedly stated to the bus driver that she does nucleic acid tests on time every day, and there is no abnormality, but the driver recognizes the "code" that pops up on the phone screen.

  When I saw the old lady being forced to get out of the car, I couldn't help but feel sad.

When the old lady got out of the car, she said something to the driver: "The system is dead, and people are alive. I am a person of nearly 80 years old. If I explain it to you like this, you can't forgive me?" In her words, it can be heard that she is a literate person, and her speech is very organized, but these methods cannot impress the driver.

  The driver is certainly not wrong, he is enforcing the system.

There are multiple surveillance cameras on the bus, which are not covered by dead ends, and record the situation on the bus at all times.

If he does not let the old lady get out of the car, he will be punished, including fines.

The driver repeatedly called the old lady "aunt" to gain understanding and understanding. He was really helpless.

The driver also said a sentence: "Don't say taking the bus, even if you can't scan the code at the hospital, you can't enter the door."

  In the city, the elderly used to take the bus is relatively loose.

The elderly can generally swipe the elderly card when getting on the bus, because the elderly card is associated with personal information.

However, recently, the control measures have become increasingly strict, which can also be said to be rigid.

If you can't scan the code with your mobile phone, you need to show a printed paper nucleic acid certificate; if the old man says he can't print it, the driver will suggest that the child print it.

Otherwise, please get off for any reason, there is no room for negotiation.

  During this process, if the old man cannot show such a certificate, the bus will "wait" until the old man gets off the bus.

During rush hour, people often "mobilize" the elderly to get off the bus.

It is believed that this situation exists in many cities, regardless of whether there is an epidemic.

  Behind this situation is the strengthening of digital means in epidemic prevention and control in many places.

This is of course necessary, because big data analysis can greatly improve the efficiency of epidemic prevention and control.

However, the strengthening of digital prevention and control methods will also bring some new problems, such as the above-mentioned situation of the elderly being kicked out of the car if they cannot scan the code.

  The strengthening of digital means of epidemic prevention and control measures should be based on two considerations: first, it is beneficial to the overall situation of epidemic prevention and control. Needless to say, serving the technological progress of epidemic prevention and control is an important guarantee; second, it cannot set new standards for social mobility. It is impossible to simplify and implement digital epidemic prevention and control, let alone increase the number of layers, because although this facilitates epidemic prevention and control, it has a great impact on people's lives, especially for the elderly. influence on the population.

  With the strengthening of digital prevention and control measures, it is necessary to scan the QR code to take a bus, to scan the QR code to go to the supermarket, and to scan the QR code to go to the park... Elderly people who do not use smartphones flexibly or do not use smartphones may become more vulnerable when going out. Difficult or even impossible.

  To solve this problem, people are full of wisdom.

In fact, the above-mentioned old lady's words may be changed: the system is alive, and so are the people.

Now that we can make full use of digital means to strengthen epidemic prevention and control, we can also introduce new measures to solve new problems according to the new situation, rather than simply "catch them away".

  The author does not want to see the situation of the elderly being driven off the bus again, nor does I hope that the elderly will be driven out of supermarkets and parks because of scanning code problems.
