Chief Health Director Engelberger looks forward to the Corona winter

“We will have to wear more masks again”

When temperatures drop, the number of corona cases increases. In the last two winters, the Swiss healthcare system has reached its limits. However, the chief health director Lukas Engelberger believes that this time it will be better.


GDK President Lukas Engelberger is cautiously optimistic about the Corona winter.

Interview: Daniel Ballmer

The coronavirus has surprised us more than once. With regard to the coming winter, however, Lukas Engelberger (47) sees Switzerland well prepared. The Basel government council and president of the Swiss Conference of Cantonal Health Directors (GDK) is confident that “we will have the situation better under control”.

Blick: The Corona summer wave seems to be over for the time being. How do you feel about winter?
Luke Engelberger: I’m glad we had a few months without any noticeable measures in everyday life. However, this also entails the risk that the pandemic is already far away for many. We still have a high number of cases – fortunately mostly with no severe course. However, the hospitals are still feeling an additional burden. And we have to assume that the number of cases will increase again with the colder season.
