not sure, but I wouldn't touch surfaces with penis these days
They say the penis mightier than the sword..

Might work well for wiping down surfaces.

It can get into all sorts of dirty places. Not sure it makes anything cleaner though.

No they don’t, you can get tested at the doctor’s surgery if the doctor has chosen to be in that category of practice.
There are several of them in Neuchâtel, our GP being one of them.
There are very strict regulations applied and the tests are done at specific times to avoid mixing with other patients.


Hope your test comes back negative Pancakes.
Is there a list somewhere for each canton of which GPs have so chosen?

Re: Coronavirus

Over 4,000 Coronavirus deaths reported again yesterday in the US, more daily deaths on a regular basis than on 9/11.

Information on the location of vaccination centres in each Swiss canton here.

About the press conference, still not scheduled. Apparently more restrictions so the discussion should be lively https://www.20min.ch/story/bringt-be...h-747098070961

There was a list for Neuchâtel, I’m not sure about other cantons or even whether they have the same system in place.

Re: Coronavirus

I guess the words new-variant of coronavirus will arise in the press conference later today. From the covid19 FT tracker (https://ig.ft.com/coronavirus-chart/...1&values=cases), just look at Ireland. They managed to match Belgium's 2nd wave peak and who knows what brings the future:

Thanks! I got my test result back about an hour ago... Negative!

So I'm definitely feeling relieved about that. Also, I had woken up this morning feeling much better, so I would have been surprised if the test had come back positive today (although the way I was feeling yesterday, I was sure it would be positive). Thankfully, the headache is gone today and will hopefully stay that way, so maybe yesterday it was just something related to my occasional problems with bruxism.

My son is feeling better, too... and should hopefully be able to return to school tomorrow.

Stay safe everyone... I just read that there are now 127 confirmed cases of the UK and SA variants here in Switzerland.

Its used to even out spikes in data over a few days to give easier trend indications. Sites displaying Switzerlands data should be using it seeing as they only report on 5/7 days and there's spikes all over the place.

I assume that is rolling average of new cases per day per 100k. So eyeballing CH now at 30 means 210 cases per 100k in the last 7 days. BAG reports 490 per 100k in the last 14 days, so that is about right.

Nothing to do with smokes and mirrors though. Only makes sense to express figures per population.

Re: Coronavirus

There is a Council meeting today, with a possibility of new restrictions being announced, is that correct?

If so, does anyone know what time it's supposed to take place?
