Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Viganello. Two elderly men wear a mask on their face to protect themselves from the Coronavirus (also called Covid-19). They talk while meeting near a children playground. Due to the spread of the virus, the Federal Council has categorised the situation in the country as “extraordinary”. From March 16 the government ramped up its response to the widening pandemic, ordering the closure of shops. From April 27, they can reopen under very tight conditions. Life has started again. Old people go out again. Social distancing and masks. Viganello is a quarter of the city of Lugano. 8.06.2020  © 2020 Didier Ruef
