Mr. Lampart, how hard hits the Corona-crisis, the employees in the country? The Situation could be especially for people with small incomes dramatically. The Confederation and the cantons are prepared, at the Moment, insufficient.
What makes you so black seeing? In our neighbouring countries are already closed schools. We must expect that this will happen in Switzerland. Often the parents will need to stay at home to take care of the children. How do we make sure that these people will then continue to pay? The company can no longer have it maybe if you generate any revenue.
It will Yes, action can be taken, such as short-time working. With short-time work, you can save the wages, and jobs in many cases. However, for a Situation such as I described to you, is not short created work. The Confederation and the cantons must also guarantee that the wage shall continue to be paid.
"I had with people that are so afraid of contagion that they strike superior to. So simple but I can't."

How do you perceive the mood of the employees in the Ticino, where currently the strongest restrictions apply? There is everything from Serenity to panic. I had with people that are so afraid of contagion that they strike superior to. It's not that easy but.
Would have to launch the Federal economic stimulus program? it is Crucial, first, that the wages are guaranteed. For professionals who depend on their wages. But also for the economy. Because, otherwise, a severe recession is imminent. With the short-time work the Federal government can cost a part of the wage in the case of firms with Revenue shortfalls apply. For the situations where the does not apply short-time work, the Federal additional funds available. A recovery program is the third stage of crisis management. Thus, the wages and the jobs are secured. And thus the population remains as healthy as possible.
How would you evaluate the current performance of the economy Minister, Guy Parmelin and his Entourage in the crisis? your question comes too early. Our assessment will depend heavily on what will be the decision of the Federal Council at its meeting of Friday, dam.
