Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Pregassona. Due to the spread of the coronavirus (also called Covid-19), the Federal Council has categorised the situation in the country as “extraordinary”. It has issued a recommendation to all citizens to stay at home, especially the sick and the elderly. A woman lying on a lounge chair is sunbathing in her garden behind closed gate. From March 16 the government ramped up its response to the widening pandemic, ordering the closure of bars, restaurants, sports facilities and cultural spaces. Only businesses providing essential goods to the population – such as grocery stores, bakeries and pharmacies – are to remain open. Pregassona is a quarter of the city of Lugano. 28.03.2020 © 2020 Didier Ruef
