it is believed that Ischgl has become the main “hotbed” of coronavirus in Austria itself, but also the source of its spread to neighbouring Germany and other European countries, particularly the North. It showed epidemiological investigations. Within a few days after in the Federal state of Tyrol, directly at the resort were detected the first cases COVID-19, he remained open and accepted new guests until March 14. Many have picked up an infection on the lifts and in the bars, and then smashed it home. The victims insist that they are “knowingly subjected to contamination”. The lawsuit will involve about 400 skiers, mostly German.

Norway and Iceland are known to have closed their ski resorts for a whole week before. The only EU country that has left the slopes open, is Sweden, which decided to go “his way” in the epidemic and not closed for quarantine.
