CH failed miserably!

A study by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine estimates the number of cases discovered. South Korea has found an estimated 59 to 100%, Switzerland only 27 to 52%

You won't find what you're not looking for...
This study is based on data from early March, at that time most countries had very low testing capacities. Different situation now as more and faster tests have become available.

edit: that being said, the only study of the CMMID (apparently the source for that graph) that I was able to find, shows slightly different numbers.

From that paper it becomes apparent that under-reporting is estimated based on the ratio of deaths to confirmed cases using case fatality rates from China. It does however NOT take age into account, which is a known factor to increase case fatality rates.

And of course:
Wash your hands multiple times a day, and in particular every time you return home and before you touch anything in your apartment.
This is part of the procedure my family were given to follow when my mum was in hospital isolation with a contagious disease.
I would strongly recommend that anyone who is paranoid or has a tendency towards being a little OCD, doesn't open the link.

Cough into a face mask is the best way. But nobody wears anyhow. Or cough or sneeze into a tissue. Are you going to wash the elbow of your jacket or jumper every day. Because thats what you should do and not just put it on the next day unwashed and full of your nose and throat mucus!
No, but you don't touch anything much with it either. That's the hands' job, which is why you want to keep them virus-free.

BaselStadt has been registering @40 a day for a week or more, and yesterday recorded 12 new ones.

SRF uses the data from the statistical bureau from the canton of Zurich as their source, it's an updated collection of all cantonal data: https://rsalzer.github.io/COVID_19_CH/

The other source would be the BAG, which publishes the data once a day and takes into account when the test was made (and not when the result was obtained): https://www.bag.admin.ch/bag/en/home...ml#-1199962081

Toilet paper shortage fades into insignificance!

Quote:
A global shortage of condoms is looming, the world’s biggest producer has said, after a coronavirus lockdown forced it to shut down production.

Malaysia’s Karex Bhd makes one in every five condoms globally. It has not produced a single condom in its three Malaysian factories for more than a week because of a lockdown imposed by the government to halt the spread of the virus.

Stable, some 120k tests, detection of infections has been about the same number every day for a week (give or take a few), i.e. no massive growth (anymore), let alone doubling of numbers every couple of days. Multiple sources says that qualifies as slowed down, and even the BAG says "the worst predictions have not materialized".

You could do social distancing and use the toilet paper.

Has the spread of the virus slowed, or have we reached maximum testing capacity? Or maybe both..
