Switzerland cuts new COVID-19 infections in half without national lockdown
Switzerland has slashed COVID-19 case counts in half within a matter of weeks despite bars, restaurants and gyms in most of the country staying open. The country recorded 10,128 new cases on Nov. 5, but the figure dropped dramatically to 4,312 new infections on Nov. 27, the Telegraph reported. Instead of implementing a nationwide lockdown, the Swiss government has largely left restrictions up to individual regions to decide, the outlet reported.While Geneva ordered a strict lockdown, other major hubs such as Zurich and Bern allowed restaurants, bars and gyms to continue to operate. The Swiss have only issued a few national restrictions — including a limit of 10 for private gatherings, an 11 p.m. restaurant curfew and mask mandates in crowded spaces.Source: New York Post
