I have growing concerns regarding the consequences of COVID mitigation measures on the social fabric. I fully support these measures of course. Yet as the virus will stay with us for a while, we need to assess the impact of such measures beyond their strick medical impact.
People need to be able to communicate IRL as freely as possible, to go together through positive experiences, to develop new projects together. We need a vibrant society. Yet, presently the "other" is featured as a potential danger, and tends to be reduced to that.
If people don't talk to each other, the risk of conflict grows. COVID mitigation measures, including travel restrictions, restrict our interaction opportunities with others. Again, I am in favor of such measures.
Another issue is the lack of security in decision making. So much information circulates about COVID, and it is difficult for make one's opinion up on what to do. Further, the present Swiss COVID strategy is really difficult to read and to understand.
I appeal to each of us to consider the consequences of COVID mitigation measures on our society
I appeal to our authorities to spell out a strategy taking into account dimensions beyond the strict medical and economic issues
I appeal to the Swiss Covid Task Force to integrate the short and long term social considerations in their policy briefs
@alain_berset @BAG_OFSP_UFSP @swisscovid19stf (@samiahurst) @GDK_CDS @swissparliament and the Swiss population at large
Our constitution calls for such actions
