Distances

One of the worldwide actions to fight COVID-19 is (still) the social distancing.

In Switzerland they have been proud for long time having set 2m as distance everyone has to keep from the others to protect himself/herself and the others.

This 2m “mantra” is more than the Italian 1m, or the German 1.5m or the vague “according to the common sense” prescribed in Sweden and France. And the Swiss are very happy for this.

But the fact is that very very very very few people respect the 2m distance in the Confederation (maybe no one knows how does a 2m separation look like?): the distance often becomes 20cm as a practical rule here!

But the most of the people is very keen and honored, unfortunately, on not wearing protective masks! Even the government was and still is very foggy regarding the use of masks! Just 6% of the people use masks on the public transportation!

20 actual cm and 6%! These are the numbers that, for me, confirm the fact that the low COVID-19 infection cases in Switzerland at the moment is just due to luck…

One thought on “Distances

  1. It may be that luck is only a portion of different reasons that in Swqitzerland the Covid19 is not so strong.
    Another reason may consider the climate (temperature) , another one the pollution etc.,
    North Europe in general (exciuding U(K) have had much less problems with Covid -19 compared with South Europe (France Italy Spain)
