Politicians from all major parties are calling on the government to introduce a requirement that all travelers from China must have a negative Covid test before entering the country.

The EU recommends this move and all neighboring countries have implemented this policy. Bern is likely to make a decision on Wednesday after the weekly meeting of the Federal Council.

The head of the Conference of Cantonal Health Directors told the NZZ newspaper yesterday that Switzerland must coordinate its actions with EU states.

But not everyone agrees. Huldrich G√ľnthard, an epidemiologist at the University Hospital Zurich, says that testing does not make sense, but that all travelers should be vaccinated.

The federal health department says that the current high level of vaccination and immunity in this country is enough to prevent another wave.
