Has to be TI. They won't understand that the rest of the country is blaming them, and we wouldn't understand anyway if they said anything in return.

Also, the mutation was sequenced by an Italian lab, so TI must be to.blame.
Or, the Italian Grisons?

Interesting that they've said that 1/3 of the population has been naturally infected. Means we are now rapidly approaching 50% with antibodies.

Does that mean that he now has 5 motorcycles, 2 cars and his own Covid variant?

Indeed, but it is unknown to what degree the already recovered and vaccinated populations overlap :/ But, it would be interesting if antibody tests are also widely used. We'll find out who already had it without having any symptoms https://www.swissinfo.ch/eng/a-third...d-19-/46563932

Fairly reasonable to assume there is the same 1/3 overlap. So probably about 42%.

Except - as they were testing for antibodies I guess they must have picked up all those immunised. So we're possibly back to the one third originally counted.

Oh and the antibody tests do produce a certain level of false positives...

The 1/3 was definitely a scientific best guess for natural infection - not inc. vaccinations. We then have around 20% vaccinated at least once so 33% + (0.2 times 67%) makes around 46%. Very roughly.

Hopefully in a month or two we will have gotten protection to a level where the infections quickly reduce.

There is very little known about the double variant which is spreading like wildfire , so I would agree on banning flights from India... .
I actually understood it wad a "triple" variant.

I would definitely talk to your GP. I also had a hospital stay last week and my Doctor vaccinated me before I went in. Mine was a planned operation so different to your situation. I understood from her that Doctors had been instructed to vaccinate high risk patients (chronic illnesses) and that those being vaccinated according to age only should go to the vaccination centre(s).

In any event, I wish you a speedy recovery.
Thank you! I hope your recovery is going well.
The vaccine centre in Uster have told me I will just have to keep looking for new appointments until I manage to book some.
Fingers crossed it will not take too long.

Darcy

Thank goodness, the situation is extremely worrying. Is it as apocalyptic as it appears?

It sort of takes the "warm weather improving things" out of the equation now doesn't it? As it is scorching there right now... of course we have a much different living situation than India, but it really shows just how bad this virus with these variants can be.

Looks awful indeed.

The alleged "seasonality" of Covid has always been nonsense. The only effect is that in moderate climates people spend more time outdoors where the infection risk is much lower. It guess there is a turning point at 35 degrees or more when people are indoors again (see also they big wave in the US South last summer).

True and the temperature in Mumbai only drops 4 or 5C overnight.

Armchair expert guess: whatever advantage they got for warm and humid weather is buffered or over topped by air pollution in major population centers. Chronic irritation of airways is not good for this virus.

PS. At least the contagion of normal influenza is faster when air has higher PM2.5 levels. After some years in CH I take clean air for granted but we're in a safe bubble https://err.ersjournals.com/content/30/159/200242

Re: Coronavirus

You can install an app AlertSwiss and you'll have an alert with the news regarding the vaccination process. Currently they vaccinate groups A-E and O.

Here is the link: https://www.be.ch/corona-impfung but the website it down right now.

You family members living in the same household as you should be H or I, so you wife has probably registered to the wrong group. Though it's unclear if these two letters have priority as the federal government thinks they should be vaccinated together with everyone else.

Re: Coronavirus

I don't believe in 1/3 of natural immunity in CH. Here are the results of the study published in March 2021:
https://www.corona-immunitas.ch/medi...erop_welle.svg
The number on the left from an arrow is from the study May-Oct 2020.
Zurich definitely didn't get from 11% to 33% in the last few months. Maybe this 1/3 is only applicable to canton Vaud, this looks more realistic.

Vaud is February, ZH is January. And not sure why but no day of the month is mentioned.

FWIW, the 2 Basel cantons saw an 8% jump from Feb to Mar 2021. 15% over 2 months, why not?

Quote:
Seroprevalence markedly increased during the second coronavirus wave and it has increased from 6% (in October 2020) to 13% (mid-February 2021) and then to 21% (March 2021).
But, careful with the data. This study considers vaccinated people.
Quote:
The increase in the number of people who are positive for antibodies also reflects the effect of vaccinations. Until mid-January 2021, seroprevalence among those aged 75 years or over was only 8%. By mid-February 2021, that figure had increased to 53% and by mid-March, it had increased to 81% (Basel-Stadt: 86%, Basel-Landschaft: 76%).
https://www.swisstph.ch/en/news/news...-basel-region/

On the great news department, 86% of the population 75+ YO in Basel City already was sick or got the vaccine. If the only the old die holds water, deaths should go to zero soon.
