The Helvetia insurance approximately provides the view, there are no claims of more. The world health organization (WHO) have declared the Coronavirus is now pandemic.

A pandemic, however, the reasoning of the Helvetia responsible, is now no epidemic (SonntagsBlick reported): a quibble, with hardly an Insured is expected to have is likely.

Gastro-suppliers without the customer

but it can detect no creative solution: “Should not take on the Major players in the current crisis, the required responsibility, it is up to each of us that we support in the future, the micro-enterprises.”
