Speeds up metabolism which decreases stress, too.

Lol. Great stuff for fresh and smart minds. The project, I mean. Not the pot.

Then one doesn't wonder why pandemics gets treated with a bit of a distance and lot of rationality, no rash moves here. When is Berset speaking today?

according to the source: fro 0.04 to 0.2 worldwide.
Except that source calculates a full cycle mortality of between 0.5% and 2.9%, depending on the final infection rate and the share of infections amongst the high risk population.

The BAG state the Swiss mortality rate is 1.5%.

Coronavirus: Federal Council imposes stricter national measures and closes restaurants, cultural venues and sports and leisure facilities

Bern, 18.12.2020 - The epidemiological situation is a cause of great concern. The number of infections is very high and is continuing to rise. Hospitals and healthcare workers have been under extreme pressure for weeks and the festive period increases the risk of an even more rapid rise in cases. At its meeting on 18 December, the Federal Council, after consulting the cantons, decided to tighten national measures against the spread of the coronavirus even further. The aim is to considerably reduce the number of contacts. From Tuesday, 22 December, restaurants and bars, cultural venues and sports and leisure facilities will have to close. The Federal Council has also expanded the use of rapid tests.
The aim of the measures is to reduce case numbers rapidly and substantially, to protect people from the virus, safeguard the health service and relieve the pressure on healthcare workers. The cantons must once again be able to guarantee at all times that tests are available, contacts can be traced and isolation and quarantine requirements are respected. The new measures take effect from Tuesday, 22 December, and will apply until 22 January 2021.
Restaurants to close
Restaurants and bars will be required to close. No exceptions will be made for the festive period. There will however be exceptions for work canteens, school canteens in primary and lower secondary schools, and meals for hotel guests. Takeaways and delivery services may remain open.

Sports facilities to close
Sports facilities will be closed. Outdoor sports in groups of up to five people continue to be permitted. Professional matches may continue to be played behind closed doors. Sports and cultural activities for children and young persons under the age of 16 are permitted, with the exception of competitive events.
Cultural and leisure venues to close
Museums, cinemas, libraries, botanical gardens, zoos, and other cultural and leisure venues will be closed. Cultural activities remain possible in small groups. Events with an audience, however, are still prohibited. Alternative forms of event, such as events broadcast online, are permitted.
Further restrictions on capacity of shops
The number of persons who may be in a shop at any given time will be further restricted. The maximum number depends on the floor space available. Strict precautionary measures will continue to apply in all shops. Restrictions on opening hours continue to apply: shops must remain closed between 7pm and 6am, and on Sundays and public holidays.

Re: Coronavirus

Restaurants, gyms, zoos, museums and libraries close for a month from Tuesday.

Ski resorts remain open.

Anyone really think this will have any effect?

Re: Coronavirus

Iím at the Zurich airport and for the first time I believe that we should go into lockdown again...
80% of passengers are not wearing the masks correctly (some arenít even wearing) and no one is respecting the min. distance...

Police ? Iím here since 10:30 and I didnít see them passing or nearby...

Come on....

Yes.

First of all, it will be f---ing boring the next month. On a more serious note, I do think restaurants are a problem, so this will have an effect plus it actually may help the restaurant owners.

The problem is the Christmas period now with all the travel and people mixing. So very possible that whatever the positive effect of what is announced today will be invisible in overall increasing numbers. Then I am sure the usual suspects will remind us how the measures had no effect and just damaged the economy.

Its 1.5% based on diagnosed case.

So the real mortality rate is nothing like 1.5%

Re: Coronavirus

Thank you for posting the new restriction announcements, Swissotter.

It will be interesting to see what kind of effect these new restrictions will come to have on the #'s. I have read before that restaurants are one of the biggest 'culprits' in terms of new transmissions. Kids are also off of school for the next two weeks for Xmas. I'm curious what kind of effect that could have on the #'s, though I guess it will be hard to tell, since new restrictions were announced anyways.

Hopefully people will also do their part by limiting contact over the holidays, which I know sucks, but it is what it is, and this is just one year. I think people need to keep in mind how important it is to do their part... especially if they want to try to help prevent another hardcore lockdown like we had last spring.

It will make the shop lines outside the stores even longer. It was a nightmare already last night, ton of people waiting outside breathing at eachothers' necks.

Yes, and the share of Covid patients is crazy with 66%.

Yes I think so. Realistically it'll probably end up like this until we have the oldies vaccinated. Which is why its so irritating they haven't started.
