ZURICH, Dec 30 (Reuters) - The Swiss government on Wednesday decided against imposing further restrictions to prevent the spread of the coronavirus amid faster-spreading variants which recently entered the country.
“The Federal Council has conducted a detailed analysis of the current epidemiological situation. This remains worrying due to the high level of infection and the appearance of two new virus variants in Switzerland,” the government said in a statement. “However, the Federal Council has come to the conclusion that the measures taken on Dec. 18...are appropriate and do not need to be tightened.”
