Is the 280chf corona test fee payable if you have deductibles?
It is handled like any other normal bloodtest so yes.

But one must not forget to see some humour in all of this....
Indeed.

I went to Italy during my lunch break, seems that Campione d'Italia didn't get the memo about the lockdown!

Re: Coronavirus

Euh?

"Mit der Zunahme der Fälle werde sich der Bund auf das «Sentinella-System» abstützen, das etwa auch bei der Überwachung der Grippefälle zum Einsatz kommt. Das heisst: Es werden nicht mehr die einzelnen Fälle gezählt. "

https://www.shn.ch/region/kanton/202...n-schaffhausen

In English:

As the number of cases increases, the federal government will rely on the “Sentinella system”, which is also used to monitor flu cases. This means that individual cases are no longer counted.

Just a few more rulings and we solved the problem.

He meant "lift", not lick.

I usually go for lifting. Licking only on Sunday.
I didn't actually.

It's British humour - intended for Hairybadger.

So if I'm wearing a mini-skirt and a mini-strip
and accidently let one rip
will the air be injected
and those around me infected?
Not sure, let me see a picture first in order to properly assess the situation.

Don't de daft- China is among the worst affected.
It's just stats and risk assessment.
So Chinese in Europe are amongst the worst affected? Who knew?

The latest pictures from Geneva look very similar to Aleppo and I hear there is an active genocide occurring in Basel.

Judging by the stats, if there was a table of Chinese tourists and a table of locals, you'd be safer at the tourist table.

Re: Coronavirus

Word on the grapevine is the British Government are likely to reissue the classic AIDS Public information film
from the 1980's appropriately modiified for Coronavirus during the commercial breaks on british TV.

Aids - Public information film on British TV in 1986 video

To be honest, Geneva was always a $hithole. So no real difference there.

Let me tell you something, my "town and region" has contributed many milestones in this here Swiss history. Our contributions go beyond welcoming tax-evading foreigners and harboring 3rd world despots. Furthermore, my "town and region" isn't masking itself with some phony Mercer report all the while being the country's filthiest and most crime-infested city. This being said, no we don't need a corona mask - corona needs a "my town and region mask".

Perfectly timed with him giving his nose a good going over!

But proper order on his side, good to see some people in the public eye know their limitations.
That's what I thought: He should leave his nose alone .... Corona or not Corona.

LOL, my thought entirely.
Maybe Corona recognizes his birth-country-fellows? Even if they lived here for ages and have not been to China for years?

The discos are alright! Although these days might get closed for having too many people.
