By 6pm on 11 March 2020 there were 1,225 recorded cases of infection in Switzerland.
When countries are ranked based on infection rate (cases / population), Switzerland now ranks ahead of China. Only Italy, South Korea, Iran and Norway have higher per capita infection rates than Switzerland.
Given the high rate of infection in Switzerland, the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) has stopped publishing a list of “affected countries”.
In addition, coronavirus testing has been restricted to high risk groups. Others with symptoms are required to stay at home and self isolate.
Going forward the recorded number of coronavirus infections in Switzerland is likely to be significantly lower than the real number.
