How much do you want to bet that the Basel fasnacht will be called off too?

I'm wondering... Just say I caught the virus and made a full recovery...Wouldn't it be an idea to be able to identify such people so that we could be deployed (voluntarily) to help people who are ill or in lockdown, or even temporarily fill roles in essential services? Even if it's just shopping or cooking for people who are ill and live alone.
It does not work this way with COVID19.

There are lots of reports of reinfections: You are not immune if you had it.

There's also anecdotal reports of the reinfections being much worse than the original one.

It's not the measles or smallpox.

Buckle in, this is one is for the history books.

Actually hired cars are generally registered in Schaffhausen and Vaudois.
Has that changed? Isn't it nasty to send a tourist on the road with a AG number plate?
On the other hand, nobody is surprised if an AG plonker suddenly drives on the left side of the road.

Isn’t that AI? Appenzeller Innerrhoden?

Or is a hired car different from a rental?

Re: Coronavirus

Apparently, the virus has reached Aargau so my wife heard the news.

Latest news from local paper only in German.

Re: Coronavirus

Given the situation in Italy with already over 400 infections and Germany who now is expecting a large outbreak I'd say we have plenty more to expect in Switzerland, not so much a question of if, but more of when.

I'd be pretty surprised if it's not already in GE.. International community plus frontaliers plus international companies / organisations..

I've still not seen a single masked person in GE but I have seen pharmacies with signs outside saying that masks and gel ARE available.
