“The government’s measures are taking effect in the canton of St.Gallen,” said District President Bruno Damann at the media conference on Tuesday. Despite a slight decrease in the numbers, the hospitals are still heavily burdened.
As the government representatives announced on Tuesday, the goal is to maintain the current trend of slightly falling case numbers in the coming weeks. The government therefore asks the population if possible to avoid shopping during rush hour in the evening and on weekends. In addition, you shouldn’t take the whole family with you when you go shopping, unless you have to.
“Despite a slight decrease in the numbers, the hospitals are still heavily burdened,” says canton doctor Danuta Zemp. 29 people are in the intensive care units on Tuesday, 20 of them are ventilated. There have been many infections in the past few days, especially in the homes. Before further measures are imposed or the current measures are relaxed, the government council would wait and continue to monitor the situation.
