Swiss Authorities’ Covid19 Tips

Very minimalist approach by Swiss government, basically contenting itself with issuance of flyers containing useful tips on how to protect yourself and others from COVID19

Authorities mainly content themselves to tell citizens what the SHOULD be doing, like not using public transport at peak times, or keeping at least 2 metres distance from each other, as if that were even remotely possible for working people.
Disinfection of public transports – or at least the most neuralgic parts like the handlebars? No one does that.

Other than that authorities do nothing. Apparently, some medical equipment is running low already (with 210 cases only) and medical personal is told to work without protective gear, but make no attempt to procured more.

I also wonder whether there are any cases in which the virus was transmitted by grabbing a contaminated flyer or free newspaper of which there are tens of thousands read by hundreds of thousands of people every day?

I am relieved to know that the Federal Office of Public Health’s says that “The top priority for the Swiss Federal Council is the health of the public.” Everything okay then…
