There are state intervention in our lives, as has been the case in recent history never. No events with over 100 people, there will be no lessons in the schools, limited freedom to travel, the re-introduction of border controls, a maximum of 50 people in Restaurants and Bars: everything was decided by the Federal Council on Friday, to slow the alarmingly rapid spread of the treacherous Corona-Virus is a little. Top it all off, raised the considerable sum of 10 billion Swiss francs, in order to mitigate at least the worst economic consequential damages.
So this is all from Swiss crass within optics excluded, so on average it works in an international comparison. In Germany, the Shutdown of the schools has been used days ago. In Austria, all the regions are under quarantine. In Italy, the economy as a whole is placed by a state decree lame. Many professionals and virologists called least in the light of the exploding case, further measures pay in Switzerland. That the Federal Council would continue with its current package of measures "and values, abound", could claim only, with due ignorance.
question is already in the opposite direction: Would have to go to the Federal Council even further? Or he should have the current restrictions sooner decide? In retrospect, at least, the second question can be answered in the affirmative. The current crisis of the regime has left to the cantons in the struggle against Corona to a lot of freedom, but also a lot of responsibility placed on it. The Federal mess about in dealing with medium-sized events has triggered uncertainty and an efficient fight against Corona is probably more hindered than promoted. The new, stricter rules set by the Federal Council to ensure more unity, legal certainty and efficiency.
Otherwise, remains as a bitter realization that rigorous government measures to combat the Virus effectively, but also the economy and the public life of sustainable damage.
It is a medicine with severe side effect. To find the right dose, is difficult. First the review then, especially since dealing with the fallout from the crisis will allow a fair judgment. The real test is in any case only. Then, if the number of sufferers will reach their peak – and the Affected care and hospital beds are in need of.
