I used to participate in F@H years ago for a tech forum that no longer exists, but with all the years worth of processing I have to wonder what came of it all? Cancer still hasn't been cured for that matter because of it. I may fire up the client just for the sake of covid-19, but am I really going to see anything from it all the while putting wear and tear on my computer and increasing my electric bill?72degrees wrote: ↑Mon Mar 16, 2020 10:37 amOr get your machines using spare processor time to help in the fight:

Restrictions on public life in Switzerland - Ordinance of the Federal Council of 16 March 2020, valid from midnight until at least 19 April!
Events: are generally prohibited. Playgrounds for children remain open.
Schools: Schools closed until 19 April. For crèches, communes and cantons must offer alternatives.
Universities: classes are cancelled, closed until 19 April
Sport: All sports, bathing and wellness facilities remain closed.
Gastronomy: bars and restaurants must close. Hotels may remain open.
Cultural & Social Cinemas, museums and concerts are closed.
Shopping: May remain open: Shops for daily needs, grocery stores. Bakeries and butcher's shops, for example. Also: kiosks, drugstores and pharmacies. Post offices and bank branches.
Occupation: In principle, working life goes on. As soon as employees show signs of illness, they have to stay at home.
Travel: Entry from all neighbouring countries is only permitted with reason. Exceptions apply to citizens of Schwiez and people with a branch office. Transit is possible.
Public transport will be reduced. International trains end at the borders. There are also restrictions on regional transport.
Sure - kiosks may remain open. That would be bad, no tobacco sales . But I can't pick up my tinted glasses clip anymore for the time being. And I can't get my defective computer under warranty.As a consequence:
All shops, restaurants, bars, and entertainment and leisure facilities will be closed until April 19, 2020.
Excluded are, among others, grocery stores and health care facilities.
Switzerland will also introduce controls at the borders with Germany, Austria and France from midnight.
The Federal Council has authorised the deployment of up to 8000 military personnel to support the cantons in hospitals, logistics and security.
These regulations will apply from midnight until 19 April. From then on, all shops, markets, restaurants, bars and entertainment and leisure facilities such as museums, libraries, cinemas, concert halls and theatres, sports centres, swimming pools and ski resorts will be closed. But also service companies that require close personal contact will have to close - such as hairdressing salons or beauty salons.
translated all with deeple.com translator - sorry! But it is too much - too complicated and I am visibly shocked.Shops for daily needs, such as butcher's shops and bakeries, drugstores and pharmacies, as well as banks, post offices, kiosks and hotels will remain open. Workshops for means of transport may also remain open. However, you must comply with the protective measures.
"The supply of the entire population with food, medicines and goods for daily use is guaranteed, and sufficient stocks have been built up", the Federal Council announced.
The army is deployed
In a further step, the Federal Council is raising the upper limit for assistance service from 800 to 8000 military personnel. This applies until the end of June 2020.
The armed forces should:
support the health system with medical services, in particular with nursing, patient monitoring, medical transports or hospital logistics
If necessary, it will take over logistical tasks such as transport and assistance in setting up improvised infrastructure.
In the area of security, it is to relieve the cantonal police corps, for example by providing greater support for embassy protection, or by supporting the border guard corps at national borders and airports.
Around 3000 members of the armed forces are available for medical support.
Recruit schools, veterans and refresher courses are to be used. These missions will be extended if necessary. Additional troops will also be mobilised for this purpose. These include all four hospital battalions and five medical companies. They are to be brought into action within four days.
"We have never deployed so many people since the Second World War," says Federal Councillor Viola Amherd on the deployment.
Controls on neighbouring countries will be tightened
The borders with Germany, Austria and France will be checked from midnight and entry bans with exceptions will be introduced. "Swiss nationals and persons with residence permits may continue to enter the country," says Federal Councillor Karin Keller-Sutter.
In detail: Only Swiss citizens, persons with a residence permit in Switzerland and persons who have to travel to Switzerland for professional reasons are still allowed to enter the country from the four major neighbouring countries. "Transit and goods traffic will continue to be permitted", says Federal Councillor Karin Keller-Sutter.
This is intended to maintain the capacities in the Swiss healthcare system, says Keller-Sutter. The Federal Council is also pursuing the possible decision on a total EU entry ban.
Help for the economy
In addition to the Federal Councillors, other representatives expressed their views, including Seco boss Marie-Gabrielle Ineichen-Fleisch.
She assured the affected SMEs of further support and again mentioned the possibility of short-time working or guarantees. However, she also concedes that "not all cases are yet covered". One works with high pressure on solutions, according to Ineichen-Fleisch.
Also the banks will help, it was further said. Sommaruga also commented on the aid measures: "Ten billion were spoken on Friday. There will be even more".
"We have the means.
... and we can not get an on line delivery slot anywhere so we will HAVE to go out
Chief medical adviser Prof Chris Whitty said the group of people who should take "particular care to minimise their social contact" were:
- Everyone should avoid gatherings and crowded places, such as pubs, clubs and theatres
Everyone should work from home if they can
All "unnecessary" visits to friends and relatives in care homes should cease
By next weekend, those with the most serious health conditions must be "largely shielded from social contact for around 12 weeks"
The UK is now "three weeks" behind Italy - the worst-hit country in Europe
If one person in any household has a persistent cough or fever, everyone living there must stay at home for 14 days
Those people should, if possible, avoid leaving the house "even to buy food or essentials" - but they may leave the house "for exercise and, in that case, at a safe distance from others"
Schools will not be closed for the moment
- People over the age of 70
Other adults who would normally be advised to have the flu vaccine (such as those with chronic diseases)
