Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Lugano. Piazza Riforma. Credit Suisse Group AG is a global wealth manager, investment bank and financial services company founded and based in Switzerland. Just two young men in the streets on a sunny afternoon. The bank offices are closed and all tourist restaurants are closed due the Coronavirus (also called Covid-19). Due to the spread of the virus, 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 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. 18.04.2020 © 2020 Didier Ruef
