Witness: worrying about safety and health
On October 9, the reporter visited a number of merchants operating a rocking vehicle in Xining City, and found that many small supermarkets, pharmacies, vegetable shops and other densely populated places have electric rocking vehicles placed at the door. The reporter is located in Chengdong District, Xining City. A vegetable shop operating in Changyun Century Village found that within ten minutes, no customers walked into the vegetable shop, but six children took the cradle, one to three years old. The reporter saw that as soon as a child approached the door of the store, he sat directly in the cradle, and pointed to the coin slot to urge the adults to buy the coins quickly.
The reporter found in the interview that the cradle car was often placed at the door of the business. The body of the car was not only covered with dust. In some cradle cars, there were garbage such as paper towels and plastic bags. Some parents also let their children play with the car while eating snacks. The operator of the rocking vehicle located in the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Garden District, Chengdong District, Xining City told reporters: "The car is dirty, wipe it with a rag, and rarely clean and disinfect."
