Now, Petra Gössi (44). In an Interview with the “NZZ on Sunday” calls the FDP-Chief, that the Corona-Lockdown to be lifted. Specifically: that all the shops are open again, which can comply with the safety measures in place, as do the grocery stores. In addition, Gössi want to open the schools, especially on elementary and middle school – after the spring holidays.

Gössi speaks not only of a large part of the economy, from the heart, the cut also, but also many citizens who want to after three weeks of Lockdown finally get your normal life back. The President of the lesser extent, the free is on a line with the SVP, which had demanded that the state government is also in the process of a quick Exit from the Lockdown.

Four soldiers of the political parties were for loosening

Were members of the party of soldiers, the matter would be clear: before Easter, they would announce the first slight loosening; finally, the FDP with Karin Keller-Sutter (56) and Ignazio Cassis (58) and the SVP, Ueli Maurer (69) and Guy Parmelin (60) a majority of the seven-member Board.

But that will not happen. The Federal Council makes its decisions less of his respective party leaders than to that of science. And their advice is clear. Epidemiologists, virologists, and also the experts from the Federal office of public health believe it is wrong to relax the measures now already.

Chinese error does not repeat>,

What is a Lockdown?

Literally translated means Lockdown “lockdown”. In the case of the Coronavirus to serve, so that infected people have no more contact to other people and not infect. And lock are disposed downs after terrorist attacks or mass shootings.

In the case of a Lockdown is a temporary state-mandated and-enforced restriction of public life.

Possible actions include:

employees and workers are not allowed to work. Curfew and house arrest – individuals must stay in the buildings in which they are. Exit and entry prohibitions. Bars, cafes, Clubs and Restaurants are closed. Domestic travel will be banned or a rule, mentat. Offices, commercial and production will be closed sites. Shopping centres are closed. Public TRANSPORT is limited, also the airports could be closed. Sports groups and other Clubs will be prohibited from your activity. Shops, except food stores, supermarkets, and pharmacies will be closed. Borders are closed, or at least sharp border checks are carried out.

Which of the Federal Council imposed, is always dependent on the Situation.

as Long as it stays that way, will not enforce a Lockdown easing in the Federal Council. As health Minister Alain Berset (47) in the “Sunday newspaper” to let on, he looks very carefully to China: There, the situation relaxed, despite a very tough interventions only after more than two months. “Then you have eased the measures, and the case numbers rose again.”

The Federal Council is the Lockdown

extend This scenario – the self-Gössi as “the worst” means I want to save the Federal Council. The state government will extend the Lockdown. And everyone you know who wants to can. Because Berset of Switzerland prepares for a week: Like a Mantra he repeated again and again, and everywhere, that it is “illusory,” on the 20. April – the day after the date deadline to change something.

it is Unclear just two things: first of all, Will declare to the Federal Council, the extension is already next Wednesday? Secondly, Will he give an indication of the point at which he will consider easing into the eye? And he will give an indication of how he envisages the gradual lowering of the economic and public life?

On Wednesday, we know at least part of it.
