Switzerland is a virus hotspot

National News // Oct. 27, 2020

Switzerland is a coronavirus hotspot and action needs to be taken. That’s the message from the health minister Alain Berset. He confirms the Federal Council is likely to announce new restrictions to stem the infection rate tomorrow.

He told the press at a conference at the University Hospital in Lausanne yesterday that the situation is critical and is likely to get worse. But he says panic is useless.

Hospitals are getting busier and they could be overwhelmed in the next two weeks. He also says there’s a problem in finding staff.

Most infections are now at home. Berset says he’s concerned the sales of hand sanitizers seem to be down from the spring. He reiterated the call for people to stay at home if possible.
