I watch people wait patiently on the platform, get in the train, get comfortable and blow their nose. Really?
Don't you have that effect that your nose starts running immediately after you come from cold air to the warm room?

Cmon, some wait with seating and do it in the culoir, at least that.

But no - my nose got good since I've started taking cold showers. Desperate times need desperate measures.

Me every single time I walk into the shop from outdoors and put my mask on. It is a terrible feeling... even my eyes start to weep / makeup starts smearing and I walk out of the shops looking like the joker.

Not much change from last week then. We seem to be stagnating at this level now. On the upside at least itís not increasing.

There was an article in the local paper today recommending double masks to combat the new variants, a surgical mask covered by a cloth one. Sounds horrendous to me, I canít imagine doing that for any length of time.

I've read the same in the US news, a few politicians did it at the inauguration and I think it is just getting ridiculous. I can barely breathe through one normal mask, god forbid you make me wear two.

Apparently the Brazilian variant has reached Switzerland ... oh joy.

I'd say it shows a continuous downwards trend. There consistently appears to be about 10-15% less compared to the previous week. I'm happy with the downward trend.

I'm also trying to be optimistic.

I am not happy - we have shut everyone in their homes and made businesses suffer for a 10 percent decrease? Ridiculous - close the schools or open everything back up and deal with the fall out.

How much were you expecting in 7 days? Seems like we have the right balance for now. Protecting the elderly from a surge until the vaccination programme finally starts to do something.

We need vaccination and improving weather to match the rise in the new variants.

It hasn't been only 7 days ... numbers are going down quite slowly for some time now despite rather extreme attempts to stop them.

Its worth remembering that the deaths should begin plummeting even if the case numbers are only slowly declining with vaccination of the elderly and sick.

7 day average was 49 two weeks ago, 40 a week ago, now 33. That's reasonable progress.

Re: Coronavirus

The chart that Ackermann has shown in today's presser where they track the model output vs actuals show that from mid Feb onwards the total new cases would start increasing again.

He was careful to say that this was not a prognosis, but I guess based on current R rates and extrapolation of growth in new variants it very well could be. They estimate 20% of all new cases now new variants, 40%ish in GE, and growing. The assumption in their model apparently is 50% higher transmission.

I'm not happy with the whole situation and people will never be happy no matter what those in charge decide.
There's doom on the horizon with the new variants. There's hope there as well with vaccines. But this shutdown over the winter months has hit me hard mentally and I'm holding out for fairer weather, both literally and figuratively. Dark winter days combined with being cut off from my regular outlets has not been great.
Knuckle down another month and hopefully one of two things will have happened, vaccine production will have picked up pace, or more sunshine makes more happy. Also more better things to do in the evenings and less frustrated English teachers.

At some point they are going to have to lengthen this 4 week gap to bring down R and protect as many vulnerable people as possible. Really frustrating this still hasn't been done. If we had single dosed the most vulnerable 800,000 people that'd prevent the large majority of deaths.

I presume plenty of those vaccinated haven't yet had the second shot and stocks are being kept to ensure those second doses are around when the time comes

Thatís certainly been the strategy here in Neuch‚tel.
They automatically put aside a second dose for everyone who has had the first one.
