Switzerland Records First Coronavirus Case

Switzerland Records First Coronavirus Case

Switzerland reported its first case of new coronavirus on Tuesday after outbreaks were identified in its main neighbours Austria, France, Germany and Italy.

The case is a man in his 70s who was infected near Milan where he attended an event on February 15, federal health office chief Pascal Strupler told reporters.

The man is from the Italian-speaking canton of Ticino on the border with Italy and has been with his family since suffering the first symptoms on February 17.

He is now in isolation in a hospital and anyone who has come into contact with him since his return from Milan will be tested and placed in quarantine for 14 days.

“His state of health is good,” the health officials said in a statement, adding that the risk of contagion for Switzerland as a whole remained only “moderate”.

But it also said that, because of the proximity to Italy, “the probability is growing that other cases will be diagnosed”.

Prior to this case, Switzerland had tested some 300 suspect cases that were all found to be negative.

The government said on Monday that it had stepped up testing on patients with flu-like symptoms and was working to raise awareness at all border points.

    Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?
    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme
    slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would
    appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during
    the coronavirus scare!

    Awesome blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you propose starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m completely overwhelmed ..
    Any suggestions? Thanks a lot!

    Right now it appears like BlogEngine is the top blogging platform available right now.

    An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I believe that you should publish more about this subject, it may not be
    a taboo matter but usually folks don’t discuss such topics.

    To the next! Cheers!!

    I do not know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing problems with your website.

    It appears as though some of the text in your posts are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let
    me know if this is happening to them as well? This may be
    a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen before.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of
    this site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s challenging to
    get that “perfect balance” between usability and visual appeal.
    I must say you’ve done a great job with this. Also, the blog loads super fast for
    me on Chrome. Excellent Blog!

    First of all I want to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and
    clear your mind prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my mind in getting
    my thoughts out. I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutes are usually lost simply just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
