The overwhelming majority of residents of the Russian Federation are opposed to indefinitely wearing protective masks in public places, but 15 percent of those surveyed supported the idea. This was reported by RBC with reference to the Superjob survey.
The study involved a thousand residents from two capitals, as well as 500 respondents from cities with a population of one million.
According to the results of the survey, 64 percent of its participants do not support indefinite mask mode. And only 15 percent rated this idea positively. Most of the supporters of wearing masks live in Chelyabinsk (22 percent), Krasnoyarsk and Ufa (21 percent each). 18 percent of Muscovites also supported wearing masks in public places on an ongoing basis.
Earlier, Rospotrebnadzor said that wearing masks is a mandatory measure, including for those who have been ill and vaccinated. The head of the department, Anna Popova, explained this by the fact that the presence of a virus capable of infecting others can be observed even on the mucous membranes of people with immunity.
