In better news, although only anecdotal, my son received the Pfizer vaccine from his employer on Saturday (Unispital) and one of the Professors there remarked that research from Israel shows that the vaccine does seem to be stopping vaccinated people from contracting the virus and thereby infecting others.
...one reason Israel managed to get their hands on such a supply of the Pfizer vaccine is that they agreed to share patient data with Pfizer. They realised that here the general public good easily outweighed patient confidentially. If only some other governments could wake up to this.

Compared to last weekend
Very good news, with some luck Switzerland will enter the worst part of the epidemics with step downcurve and this will save lot's of lives.

Now it is important that government not yield to "yeeee, let's totally open up and not wear masks" voices that without any doubt will become more vocal.

Patient data belongs to patients, not to governments. Sharing patient data involves patient concent, and actually there are a lot of privacy concerns over the Israel’s agreement with Pfizer. I don’t think the governments should be routinely sharing data with pharma companies, pharma has to collect data themselves and follow the privacy protection laws.
