Sharjah 24 – KUNA: The number of coronavirus infections in Switzerland is nearing the 36,000 mark after 136 more people tested positive in the past 24 hours, health authorities said.
The Alpine nationآ‘s tally has reached 35,746, with a death toll of 1,706, according to health ministry statistics.

As part of efforts to rein in the spread of the contagion, authorities have placed some 1,064 infected persons under home quarantine, while 12,514 fresh arrivals were told to self-isolate pending their coronavirus test results.

Switzerland has seen a spike in new cases after loosening much of its coronavirus restrictions, prompting authorities to restrict entry for travelers from countries regarded as high risk."
