Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Paradiso. Paradiso is a municipality in the district of Lugano. A derelict building with shutters closed. The house will soon be demolished.  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. From March 16 the government ramped up its response to the widening pandemic, ordering the closure of construction sites, shops, 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. 22.04.2020 © 2020 Didier Ruef
