I don't know if the results from the tests on the armed and civil defence forces personnel are also include in the figures above and we also don't know how many of the people who were on holiday in Wengen over Christmas / New Year and subsequently returned home became infected.
On the whole it looks like the measures put in place to control the outbreak in Wengen largely worked and mass testing has mopped up the last few cases. If the super spreader had gone into and remained in quarantine as required all of this could probably have been avoided.
During yesterday's Corona virus press conference, Guy Parmelin the Swiss President said "Heute haben wir doppelt so viele Coronavirus-Mutationsfälle wie vor einer Woche". Today we have twice as many coronavirus mutation cases as a week ago. It is expected that the B.1.1.7 variant will soon become the dominant variant circulating in Switzerland.
The number of new infections in canton Valais has doubled since Monday! According to the canton, many of the positive samples are currently being sequenced to find out how quickly the new variants are spreading in Valais.
Another outbreak of B.1.1.7 involving 13 employees at the Hotel Royalp in Villars-sur-Ollon was reported this evening.
