Germany isn’t happy with the Bundesrat either

For the time being, Switzerland is waiving a test requirement for travelers from China. The Federal Council decided on Wednesday.

The German Health Minister Karl Lauterbach (59) is certainly not enjoying the Bundesrat at the moment. In contrast to all surrounding EU countries, Switzerland is still waiving a corona test obligation for travelers from China for the time being. “The Federal Minister of Health continues to support a coordinated European approach,” his ministry remains diplomatic when asked.

Germany is very concerned about the corona situation in China. Because many infections would also mean many opportunities for the virus to mutate. “In addition, we lack the data from China to be able to estimate whether new mutations will occur,” explains a ministry spokeswoman. It is therefore right to expand monitoring and to demand tests. “If there should be a new virus variant, we want to be able to recognize it early on.”
