From the Aargau website (machine translation to English):

Any other cantons doing this or just AG?
In Zurich it doesn't matter how early you have registered. When slots for your group are released they are available to everybody within this group, even for those who have registered just before reserving a slot for vaccination.

It's not clear yet if they are going to give priority to people living with someone from the risk group, as the BAG allowed them not to to do it anymore.

It would be great if the infection numbers go down despite the relaxation of the measures. I think this is very possible. This would make the Covid task force look a bit strange though.
Most good ideas are strange at first.

I hope your prediction is true.

Re: Coronavirus

Last week, our HR-lady told me that her 86-year old father was released from hospital after over one month, fighting COVID19.

He originally went there to treat some infection which was close to turn into a sepsis.

But of course he caught COVID19.

It seems his wife and his daughter had suspected he had COVID19 because of coughing but only on the last day before he was to be released they actually tested him.

He is now, of course, completely exhausted and most muscles have atrophied.

This thing, even if it doesn't kill you, will literally suck the life out of you (if you're unlucky).

The mother of the girlfriend of one of my cousins died of COVID during an unrelated hospital visit.

Morale: If you can avoid it, do not enter a hospital until this is over.

BTW: anyone remember the "Diamond Princess"?

There's this documentary:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Last_Cruise

It's not Oscar-material but still tries (and partly succeeds) in bringing out the helplessness and desperation of the people on the ship.

BTW2: I think I read a report (from the World Bank) that due to COVID, almost 100m people have fallen back into poverty, most of them in the developing world.

We were expecting a delivery of 350 k (Moderna) last saturday, but only 70 k arrived.
According to Anne Levy the remaining doses should arrive this week.

If this was a one off remains to be seen.

If they really are less than week off schedule I think we can live with that.
Allegedly half a million less doses expedted for May. BAG expected to address this in press conf later today.

Re: Coronavirus

Up to 11.04.2021, 8.48% of the Swiss population has been fully vaccinated. Don't know why the data has not been updated to last Sunday 18th. Fax machines?

In age interval terms, 56% of 80% has taken the vaccine. I guess this is near the saturation point since the surveys a few months indicated only 50-55% of the population wants the vaccine.

The 70-79 years old interval is also close to be finished vaccinating at 31% last week. I guess the major effort is now on the 60-69 years old interval in the following weeks. If the vaccinations for the 60+ years old people is completed at 50-60% in the following weeks, we should see a drop in the hospitalizations really soon because most of the hospitalizations are above 60 YO.

If the elder population has a higher acceptance of the vaccine that the average, death rates may even decrease significantly.

If the vaccination continues at the current snail pace, it would take by December 2020 to vaccinate more or less all the willing people. So, the worst scenario is that the achievable best is done by December. If vaccines are delivered faster, we finish sooner.

Not bad. Meanwhile, enjoy the reopenings of this week.

Re: Coronavirus

"Monitoring of coronavirus RNA in wastewater is independent of the test behavior of the population. ETH researchers have been using the method in the city of Zurich for some time. The concentration of gene fragments in the wastewater at the Werdhölzli sewage treatment plant has been increasing sharply since March 1, as the “Tages-Anzeiger” reports. So there are currently probably significantly more cases in Zurich than are officially reported."

Re: Coronavirus

Today's numbers:

Cases 2141
Hospitalizations 77
Deaths 13

The percentage of positive tests is 9%

Weekly total deaths will be reported today, will see if the number is still going down.

Hopefully, we shall soon see some positive results of the vaccinations that likely will show up first in reduced hospitailisations then later in ICUs?
Last couple of days a small reduction in usage of Swiss ICUs according to this site.

This is underreporting for the last few days. You should only look at solid lines that end a week earlier and rise, those are reliable numbers

You do know that the numbers are reported at midday and include all new cases for the last 24 hours?

This is nothing special and has been happening since the start.

Seeing as it's your first post I hope you're not just trolling.

Unfortunately, the rest 40-45% of 60+ and 70+ not willing to vaccinate will screw everyone over. As long as the virus is freely circulating in the unvaccinated bulk of the population they will keep getting hospitalized and keep dying, despite all our efforts, keeping the numbers relatively high.

To be blunt, totally deserved and we should not feel sorry for them. And definitely not impose another lockdown or prolong the current one because of them.

The number of deaths which was reported today is 13. The dates when these deaths occurred is a different matter. It was nice of you to contribute and post this information.

So should we only report on numbers from 2 weeks ago so we're sure we have the numbers right?
Go back to your source, look at the new reported deaths (orange blocks) some deaths are not noted as covid deaths for days/weeks afterwards.

If you don't like the way we talk about numbers, only use the official sources. As far as I'm concerned the daily reports give a general indication of trends, but true information takes time to be fully visible.

As for trolling, I'm very suspicious of anyone who's first post on an online forum is asking an easily answerable question as if it's some new revelation of information. If you don't know what it is, google it.

Thats called reporting lag. The actual reported deaths today are 13, but not all of them died today. One was in fact from a week ago.

Meaning, the numbers you posted will keep increasing in the next days, as those deaths are not fully reported yet.

Re: Coronavirus

My GP claims she sent me my ärztliches attest by post over one week ago ... is it common for it to take that long from Basel - Bern??

I have a vaccine appointment tomorrow and I am really sweating. Do you think they will accept an emailed copy?
