Para poder prevenir una nueva ola de la pandemia de coronavirus, tomará más de 12 meses la vuelta en Suiza a la normalidad, estima Marcel Tanner, miembro del grupo de trabajo gubernamental COVID-19.

“No habrá partidos de fútbol con masas de espectadores o conciertos [este verano]”, señaló Tanner al periódico Neue Zürcher Zeitung en una entrevista publicada este viernes.

Tanner, exprofesor de epidemiología de la Universidad de Basilea y director del Instituto Suizo de Salud Tropical y Pública, considera que una vacuna contra la enfermedad infecciosa estará disponible hasta dentro de 15 a 18 meses como mínimo.

“There won’t be any football matches with mass spectators or concerts [this summer],” Tanner told the Neue Zürcher Zeitung newspaper in an interview published on Friday.

Tanner, a former professor of epidemiology at the University of Basel and director of the Swiss Tropical and Public Health Institute, expects the government to ease restrictions on public and private gatherings of  more than five people sooner.

He also said he expected that most people can go back to work in June if the necessary safety precautions are respected, including in public transport.

“We can be pragmatic about this,” he said. “Personally, I’d prefer to make the wearing of masks mandatory in public transport.”

Tanner is sceptical that it will be possible to resume our routines in daily life very soon.

He says it would take at least 60% of the population to develop an immunity against coronavirus. Tanner believes this could take up to the autumn of 2021.

Tanner also rejected criticism by various interest groups which want the government to ease the lockdown for the business community quickly.

The government strategy foresees a gradual relaxing of restrictions as of next Monday, followed by a further step on June 11, depending on the number of new infections.

Details are to be announced next week.
