Epidemiologist Christian Althaus from the University of Bern believes that there will be a lockdown for unvaccinated people in Switzerland, as has been the case in Austria since this week. “In Austria the main thing is to increase the pressure on the unvaccinated. But then you could have simply introduced compulsory vaccinations in the summer. In Switzerland there is no legal basis for this anyway, so I think this discussion is superfluous, ”he said in an interview with the NZZ. In Switzerland, the corona situation is as tense as in Austria. According to his assessment, there should be another critical situation by Christmas at the latest.
He also expresses fears that a 2G regulation could have a more negative effect on the pandemic: “My fear is that in this case, unvaccinated people will simply meet in other places – without testing each other – and this will lead to the spread of the virus could even accelerate. That would lead to us losing control of what is happening even more. ” He therefore proposes keeping 3G and expanding test capacities.
