Portugal is having a "second wave" right now, as is Israel, after relaxing their restrictions. Switzerland is certainly not immune to that. As it is right now, I think it's impossible to say what's going to happen and what the situation will be like a few months from now, but it's better to be cautious about it than to assume that the numbers could never explode here again.
Must be fake news. V and Clifton have told us there won't be any second waves.

Annoying a few zealots on EF is a totally different matter
So you call others racist because the zealot is them, rather than you. What a hypocrit you are.

Hypochondriac, not hypocritE. For medicinal purposes I just ravished my favorite Blonde (the beer that is) and ready for the weekend. Did you stock up on Mohrenkopfs?

Texas heading back to lockdown! They just ordered all bars closed. Trump will be apoplectic that his virus denials are ignored.

Just to make two points:
1. I assume you put me in as one of those Covid "deniers", I however, ALWAYS follow the instructions (social distancing, masks, stay at home as much as possible, etc, etc.) not because of myself, but because of other people. There's a massive difference between what I believe and what others believe in and I don't see a reason to antagonize the old lady at the Coop line. Annoying a few zealots on EF is a totally different matter Having said that, point
.
Way to go, gaburko!

Btw, you don't annoy me. It's obvious you're trolling on this thread. However, you're on the wrong side of the argument and I'm pretty sure you're better than that. Be careful to not look like the zealots you take great pleasure annoying...
It happens when you hang out with the wrong crowd you know.

I just see what is out there, people don't care anymore and have had enough, it's very simple.
That seems largely true in the places I've been in Bern, at least where masks are concerned. In shops people do seem to be distancing a bit.

...The 50 cases aren't much THB. Does anyone have a number on actual hospitalizations from these 50?
It's not clear yet but it doesn't seem to be a big jump in terms of new cases being really serious. However sometimes people try to fight at home for a while before being admitted to hospital. It may take a week or so before we see a big shift, if any.

I posted this yesterday, with data from the 24th of June:

..As of yesterday [24th June] there are 202 people with Covid-19 in hospital. 12 are in intensive care and only 2 are on ventilators. If those numbers stay that low, there's no reason to freak out and totally lock everything down again.

Source
Same source today: 200 in hospital, 12 in intensive care, and 3 on ventilators

In net numbers, despite 50+ new cases yesterday, so far no new hospitalizations.

In two weeks from now, all these people will either be on ICU or at home complaining that the government is incompetent.

Well, today there was an elderly lady at the Kiosk. When she saw me standing there in a distance (Kiosk also has lines on the floor around it) she absolutely insisted I should go first. I couldn't figure out why but then went forward. She then said "well, actually we should keep the distance" yet didn't step away. I couldn't as the Kiosk window is small these days.
That was rather weird, to be honest.

Yes. People are weird these days with this distance bit. People look at each other sometimes like the other is a walking virus. Sort of an aversion syndrome. Can't be healthy in the long term

I truly worry that the presidential election has come down to a pathological liar and a man with the onset of what appears to be dementia.
I think the liars worse, but the competition doesn't look that strong.

Hopefully just a slip of the tongue.
This one certainly is. However, given how Trump's slips and stupidities at the mic are treated, it's only fair that he gets serious flak now, too.

The disconcerting thing though is that this stuff is fairly new from Biden and seems to happen ever more frequently, including him being unable to name Obama (see Trump's Twitter acct, the retweet of Steve Guest).

All travel to and from USA should be stopped completely. ( including business travel ). We don't want their infection. Leave USA to their own devices ( they are anyhow on collapsing and nothing can save them)

Crazy. Tages Anzeiger did an online survey from its readers about compusory mask use in public transport. 87 % from 800 said yes . Tages Anzeiger then later wrote in a report that 87 % of ALL SWISS want it to be compusory. Such fake news by this dumb TA

No they didn't. The article clearly says...

Quote:
Insgesamt haben 10’519 Leserinnen und Leser an der nicht repräsentativen Umfrage teilgenommen.
The headline also clearly refers to a Leser-Umfrage (reader survey).

Oh and it's 78%.

Then the report has been changed. It specifically said 87% der Schweizer . Meaning all Swiss.

But I think this is not the report I read.

"Eine überwältigende Mehrheit der Schweizerinnen und Schweizer wünscht sich die Maskenpflicht in Bus, Tram und Zug."

An overwhelming majority of the Swiss would like to wear a mask on buses, trams and trains. At least this is the conclusion of the current Tamedia

FAKE misleading news!!

And they even insult the Swiss in calling them Schizophrenic! ( could be a little truth in that )
