While the coronavirus is still raging in certain areas in China, it has been very quiet here in Switzerland. We don’t have one known infection yet! But we are fully aware that the virus keeps spreading. The question is more, how much can it really be contained and controlled….
The impact of the virus in China is clearly felt on several fronts here too:
The media keep reporting, how the coronavirus is spreading. Facials masks are mostly sold out, even though no one is wearing them yet.
The economy is also clearly getting affected. Interlaken is one of the main tourist spots in Switzerland. There are no guests from China anymore. The Chinese restaurant in the picture was empty when I visited around 1pm!
The production of goods in China is affected. This has even an impact on global companies such as Apple and Co.
Our hearts go out to China, that is going through an extreme situation. We are looking forwards to the time, when guests from China are again able to enjoy the beauty of Switzerland strolling around leisurely without having to wear facial masks!
