The shut-down is not being accompanied by extra federal cash. The cantonal finance minister Nathalie Fontanet says the lack of support from the Confederation is situation is shocking.

A view shared by Geneva’s president, Anne Emery-Torracinta and the health minister Mauro Poggia who both complain the cantons are left to pick up the cost.
