Two positive kids in the same class but… show must go on

In the small village where I live, in Canton Argovia, two pupils in the same primary school class (the 6th) were tested positive to COVID-19 some days ago. In the relevant communication, the director of the school (which is attended also by my two daughters) quickly declared that everything was decided by the competent Cantonal authority, as if he himself, as school director, were just an observer.

And this was the brilliant decision of the relevant authority: The school continued as normal, as if nothing happened without additional protective measures. Absurd!

This example shows the hideous and alarming Swiss situation on the pandemic…

Japan postponed the Olympic Games but in Argovia…

… they could not postpone the 50th anniversary celebration of the biggest shopping centre of Switzerland (“Shoppi Tivoli”) in Spreitenbach (AG)!

Considering that Switzerland has had one of the steepest increase rate of Coronavirus infection for the last two weeks and that the situation seems out of control, this occurrence is a shame for Argovia and Switzerland itself!

PS: The photo above is not relevant to a Black Friday in the US some years ago, but is showing the situation in the mentioned shopping centre! All what should never happen in these times: A lot of people without mask, no distance, too many people! The CEO of Shoppi Tivoli, with a typical arrogant and I-know-the-best attitude, before this unnecessary event started, as reply to some already starting critics, had dared to declare “No reason to become nervous”.


Probably the famous self discipline of the population remained home to sleep on this Saturday…

… and probably the mentioned CEO himself is becoming quite nervous now!
