A short appeal to the Corona-doubters

they are There, the Corona-skeptics. You are not a few. It is found in the comment of the online media columns, you can hear your discussions in the S-Bahn the next compartment. All just a Hype. Exaggerated. Media drama. "Stop with this theatre! It Gschiss, sorry huere!", a write to the latest Situation report from SVP-health Director Natalie Rickli on their Facebook page.

Sorry back, love Kommentierer, but you're wrong.

The train of thought is understandable. I don't know anybody personally, who is ill with the Virus. In road transport, more and more people die as by Corona. Even when skiing! And that's why I have to have my daily limit? Not to the football game? The spring holiday to Italy to paint?

And her everyday recipes are surprisingly simple: wash hands, shake hands, avoid, keep your distance, in the elbow cough, to remain with fever and cough at home.

It will take weeks or months until we know how bad the epidemic will actually be. We can us love Skeptikerin, dear skeptics, in the meantime, of course, the recommendations of the Doctors to comply with?

Because people can cost-wait for life.
