The Swiss Confederation held a joint press conference to introduce the development of the new Coronavirus epidemic in Switzerland.
Daniel Koch, head of infectious diseases at the Federal Ministry of Public Health, said that it is currently difficult to answer whether the number of infected people in Switzerland has reached a peak.
From the situation in recent days, the spread has continued, and the number of diagnoses per day has increased relatively stable and remained at About a thousand people, but there are signs of slowing down.
Federal Operation Commander Leonard Doz said that 5,600 soldiers have been deployed to fight the new Coronavirus epidemic, of which 128 have been infected.
The next tasks are still very heavy. How to ensure that the tasks of assisting hospitals, participating in the epidemic prevention, protecting the embassies and consulates, and the federal administration and customs in a safe situation are very important.
At present, all 26 cantons across Switzerland have raised the need for military support.
In addition, the new Coronavirus epidemic will also be a heavy hit for the Swiss tourism industry, which is expected to lose 6 billion Swiss francs.
