Switzerland. Canton Ticino. Lugano. A young and an elderly woman wears both a mask on their faces to protect themselves from the Coronavirus (also called Covid-19). They take a walk close to the river. Due to the spread of the coronavirus, 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. The Federal Council (German: Bundesrat, French: Conseil fédéral, Italian: Consiglio federale, Romansh: Cussegl federal) is the seven-member executive council that constitutes the federal government of the Swiss Confederation. 16.03.2020 © 2020 Didier Ruef
