News Lockdown probably lasts until summer

Lockdown probably lasts until summer


Even after April 19, a gradual easing of the measures can be targeted, it said. In a confidential situation bulletin from Tuesday, from which “SonntagsBlick” quotes, Protection & Rescue Zurich also made a forecast. The “most likely development of the situation” is therefore that the pandemic cannot be contained sufficiently. Therefore, the measures would have to be tightened and “massively extended” – beyond the summer holidays.

Meanwhile, bourgeois politicians pleaded for the measures to be withdrawn as quickly and gradually as possible: “The lockdown is taking an increasingly high toll,” said SVP parliamentary group leader Thomas Aeschi of the “NZZ am Sonntag”.

“Thousands of SMEs will have to file for bankruptcy,” he said. However, youngsters should be able to go back to work as soon as the number of new infections has decreased significantly, it said. Aeschi also told the “SonntagsZeitung” that all shops such as hairdressers, garden centers, butchers, electronics stores and do-it-yourself shops as well as dental surgeries should be reopened. The president of the employers’ association, Valentin Vogt, told the “NZZ am Sonntag” that he was assuming a controlled ramp-up in public life: “It is important that planning is started immediately.”
