All the corona underestimators should now watch SRF1. A married couple that was on holiday had to buy extra a car. They are sitting in the car 3 days in cold Norway! Then they cross Sweden. Infected people also speak and they are not old people!

Corona Lockdown End in Switzerland
• On April 27, hospitals will be able to perform all operations again, outpatient practices as well as hairdressing, massage, tattoo and cosmetic studios will be allowed to open again, as will DIY stores, garden centres, flower shops and market gardens.

• From 11 May, compulsory schools and shops will be allowed to reopen. Children are not a driver of the epidemic.

• On 8 June, secondary, vocational and higher education establishments, museums, zoos and libraries will also be allowed to reopen their doors.

• Despite the gradual openings, the Federal Council does not want to make masks compulsory. However, it is endeavouring to ensure that such masks can be purchased if necessary. (Logically no mask obligation, because there are still far too few masks in Switzerland. In addition, they have become much too expensive for many people.)

• It is not clear when restaurants and bars will reopen. The Federal Council is leaving it to the catering industry to develop appropriate concepts. (They had submitted the concept first, long ago, Mr. Federal Councillor Berset!)

Self-employed persons who are indirectly affected by the measures will now also receive compensation for loss of income. (Finally, justice! But unfortunately, as soon as their industry is free, they will no longer be able to demand anything, although probably hardly anyone will go there.)

• Meetings of five or more people will continue to be prohibited, including barbecues. The Federal Council also has a negative view of festivals.

The borders remain closed. (In our village there are several car numbers from abroad.)

(Emergency Changes reserved!) For events this year the government see black! Most probably none.

Soon it will be possible to go back to the hairdresser or even get a tattoo. However, a lonely soul is not allowed in a restaurant or café. What a bad decision by Federal Councillor Berset!!! (At noon you sit down with food from the takeaway on the park bench, where many people pass by, instead of protected in the restaurant).
What a disaster for Switzerland if the restaurants and bars were not allowed to open again until 6 June! Many businesses would not survive that long, are already on the last spigot or are already on the verge of closure!
But mainly the federal councillors and businessmen / businesswomen have nice hair! :evil: Federal Councillor Berset might even want to get a tattoo. Or he's afraid of the people who want to get tattoos. The cups do not seem to be all in the cupboard anymore. Excessive demands of the highest Swiss authorities.

***
A hardship case for help in the emergency The street kitchens are also closed due to the Corona pandemic.

Hats off to the rejected refugee Amine Conde!
Together with his helpers, he provides hundreds of poor families, sans-papiers and other migrants with food and the most basic necessities every day, in the common room of the autonomous school in Zurich.
One day, when there is not enough flour, rice and oil left, he took a volunteer to a shop and paid for the missing food himself!

It's 11:45. The first woman is already standing in front of the door, waiting for the food delivery. She must be patient. There are signs on the walls and doors: "Please keep two meters distance!" In the common room, Conde instructs the volunteers, two women and a man, and hands them a box of masks. "Only one person or family at a time may enter. Here she takes a paper bag with basic food items. Here she can pack a loaf of bread and an apple. "Iced tea is fine, you can give two of them." There are also boxes of pre-cooked rice and spaghetti with sauce. "You can take as much as you want."

For people who have no money at all, he keeps two bags full of hygiene articles ready. The bag for the men contains disinfectant, toothpaste, shampoo and skin cream. For women there are also sanitary towels. "One pack with night pads and one with day pads," Conde explains. Shampoo is also available for the women. It is for hair and skin - and smells good, he says in singing German with a West African-French accent.

"I couldn't sleep for one night, the memory of hunger and the idea that families are affected by it just wouldn't let go of me."

Condes began distributing food with pre-cooked meals. These were already paid for by childcare facilities, but were no longer needed. "That's when I saw for the first time how many people today are dependent on our food," says Amine Conde. On Facebook he called for more donations in kind, negotiated with various businesses and organizations and collected money. He uses this money to buy more food: flour, rice, spaghetti, but also toiletries. "We have received many monetary donations. This will last for quite a while," says Conde.

Amine Conde knows what hunger feels like. At the age of 16, he fled from his homeland Guinea. He spent three months in Morocco's forests, then, like thousands of refugees from black Africa, he tried to reach the Spanish exclave of Melilla. "I had to beg for food. It was one of the worst experiences in my life."

In Sines Portugal, campers from DE, CH, GB etc. have been stuck in an industrial car park for weeks. At least there is a supermarket and washing machines. The police told them that they are not allowed to leave this parking lot except for shopping. They are also not allowed to go swimming in the sea. In the meantime, flying merchants are also appearing there to offer goods.

Only in exceptional cases do they receive a travel permit to pass through Spain. But they have to wait a long time for such a permit.
Looks pretty macabre, these campers drinking coffee in front of the motorhomes in the parking lot without green.
Woe to him who does not have enough money in stock!

Although wild camping is prohibited in Portugal. However, as all campsites have been closed by the government, EU tourists have no other choice.

In Kiel there is a lot of toilet paper because nobody goes to one of the 6 drugstores anymore. The reporter was the only customer - only 1 cash register was open in the huge drugstore. :)

The asparagus growers in DE have huge problems. There is a lack of harvest workers. Now new helpers are coming from Romania, because no one from the other countries wants to come.

They also showed a woman who became very ill with Corona and it now finally seems that she has won the fight. She had a fever of over 40 degrees and fantasized for two days. They had her constantly from her back to her stomach and back again. She was definitely not very old yet!

Now comes the logical consequence of Corona: the hunger pandemic in the world!
The harvests are endangered everywhere anyway because it is much too dry! In my village you should already see green in the fields, but it is completely dry to see only the earth in the fields.
This year could be terrible! Corona will not be the only bad thing. But unfortunately most people have still not understood this, especially the younger ones in Switzerland!

After all, cancer follow-up examinations are postponed for months. This is fatal for my husband, for example, because he has to go to cancer surgery every three months. Therefore many people will probably die of chronic diseases! People are now only concentrating on Corona. That is also completely wrong!

If you have a mild corona infection, like me, for example. you have to sit in self-isolation, you are not allowed to go to the family doctor or the hospital. But it is tedious, because you feel well in the evening and the next morning it is really bad again. It is as it seems, in some cases simply not to get away. You stay sick for weeks. Also abnormal! But maybe you would be even more infected in hospital by an infected nurse.
You are not even registered as infected, because you cannot take a test. Unless you do it voluntarily on the net (which I've been doing for a long time). That's why you can't believe the published figures in Switzerland!
It is also quite difficult to estimate which of the many medications one should take. After all, you are not a doctor! After all, I worked in nursing. But not everyone who has to treat himself has that either.
They want to have the virus under control in Switzerland, but that is not true at all. If you are only slightly ill, you are left to your own devices. At least my husband is supposed to be imun against Corona, thanks to his gout medicine, which he has to take for years. I can't infect him with it. But this fact is not really reassuring either.

I am afraid that many easily infected can later become severe cases. Because it never seems to go away completely. In my opinion, more attention should already be paid to the slightly infected. The next Monday you can go to many shops and therapies again. Then people who think they are healthy again go out and infect healthy people! As long as you still have any symptoms, no matter how small, you are a danger to other people.

At least if you are ill, you should get, the now completely overpriced masks, for free! But not even that. In addition, the health insurance company came today to settle the bill for the drugs. Since this year some medicines have been cancelled in Switzerland and you have to pay for them yourself, either completely or to a large extent. Woe betide those who do not have supplementary insurance! They will pay many of them themselves. This is simply no longer normal! If you are in hospital and receive the same medication, everything is paid for, thanks to the hospital lump sum.
You can also go bust in self-isalation. 5 masks 45 francs - Hand disinfection 55 francs - Pastilles for angina 53.60 - Nasal spray 25.80 - Home desinfection 65 francs - Circulatory fluids 55.20 - Hand soap special meanwhile 6.50......
What to pay with, if the wage is already gone, thanks to food conversion!

The only thing wrong, not only men and also women suffer :mrgreen: Four musicians in quarantine perform under the name "Buechibärger Wohnzimmer Quartett " a song and record each home from exile. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WQSaLUCIv5E * https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9WplRo4EYpU There are a lot of professional musicians in my area.
