From next week you'll need a Covid certificate to get into various places.

A minor inconvenience if it means a lockdown or other restrictions can be avoided.
Shame it doesn't apply to online locations as well. Could get rid of a bunch of anti-science, anti-logic, anti-rational, anti-critical thinking folk!

I was abused by a fellow passenger for not having my mask covering my nose. When explaining to him that the mask was useless he proceeded to verbally abuse me for the rest of the bus ride. I put my head phones on, flipped him off and just looked out of the window. Idiot was red with anger, but then I am in Geneva so it was just some gallic posturing on his behalf - had he physically assaulted me he would have ran a higher risk of contamination

But then there are plenty of usefull idiots who can't be bothered trying to understand whether a law makes sense or not. Masks, if not put properly or changed frequently are useless, in other words except for a pacifier making you feel better about yourself it does bugger all. For the elderly go get the vaxx, for the youth get on with your life, catch it and then help stop the spread by getting our population to herd immunity. No need for useless masks.

My wife is vaxxed that's her choice, I am not that's my choice. My kids will NOT be vaxxed because when every winter old people get vaxxed you don't do this to kids who have no risk of dying of the virus - same with this virus. Kids don't die of it. A vaccine is never full proof, so why add a risk to your life that is unecessary.

You don't stop the spread by getting vaxxed - so you are not a liability to society by not getting the jab. When you realise old people who are most at risk are getting the virus and dying from it make the laws and big pharma has found a forever revenue stream, it makes you question the current legislation. Questioning is healthy, the current dictatorship on debate is frightening.

Looking in spite at someone because they are not masked might not deserve the reaction you got, but at the same time maybe you'll think twice about having a hollier than though attitude towards others who might not have the same believes as you.
Love it!

All you had to do was pull the mask over your nose. That's it. Your attitude is disappointing.
Why?

What's is not to understand? People who purposefully refuse to wear masks in places where the law says you must do so are misguided deiusionals with psychological problems who think they are making some kind of societal stand against whatever notion of tyranny and injustice they have convinced themselves of.
Laws were created in rush by brainless politicians who only care how to keep their seat.

One of the reasons that Switzerland works so well as a society is that people accept the rules because they understand their necessity and support them.

People don't cut their grass on a Sunday morning because they don't want their neigbours to do that either. People tell you off for not cleaning the communal washing machine because they themselves want it to be clean.

COVID rules are largely opaque and don't make much sense. And people who do question them are told they are stupid and need to move with the crowd. This is why so many people are openly or covetly resisting. In the above case we have some individuals who obviously managed to get through check-in and airport security without a mask, managed to get through boarding without a mask. So obviously none of the people there cared. They managed to sit down on the plane without a mask. But then the captain of the plane had to personally act like a pedant and delay the plane and turn back on the taxiway (just imagine doing that in a busy airport like Zurich) and then ask control to give him a gate. The text even says he called the police himself after docking. This just shows how little the rest of everybody was even on board with his one man heroism.

Not very long ago in certain countries they would have given him a very thin plaque of unpolished aluminium with a picture of Lenin embossed on it and called him a hero in the newspaper while everybody else would have mocked him behind his back and spat in his sandwiches.

A concept that is not entirely off topic in times of COVID.
There are a lot of countries where things work well and masks are not required and infection rate and deaths curves look IDENTICAL to CH.

E.g. Sweden

Worldometers says 1,261 deaths per 1M for Switzerland, 1,441 per 1M for Sweden. So Sweden 14% more of a disaster than Switzerland.

Chuff is quiet because he has been caught out lying above, and can't bring himself to apologise and admit wrongdoing.

Re: Abused for wearing mask on Bus!

I know how many mask lovers are here ... and they see only mask mask mask , it's a sacred object , we're not allowed to talk about it but.......

But I have this mask hack that I've been using whenever I want to... )
Yesterday I was shopping at Migros and the mask makes me thirsty even after 2min ..and I have my bottle of water so I'm having my mask down and I'm sipping on as I walk around.. doing the biggest crime ever like -breathing- ... no one told me anything.. and I was more worried a crazy EF member might see me and throw a tantrum than the security, police, judge and jail ... ) but I must say this thing is very useful.
even if someone says something, I can always say "sorry, just a sip" cover my mouth with that beautiful plastic veil and respect the covid-God.

For the cry babies who would think this is a crime, calm down... if you sit down at migros where you have tables you can drink coffee, eat a cake and it's fine.

Same thing with the example for the airplane, one second MASK mask, next second NOW EAT DRINK everyone ,covid is going to wait now.
