Despite Coronavirus, Swiss do not want to return

“Probably the largest return campaign in Swiss history,” said Hans-Peter Lenz, the EDA crisis manager, at a press conference a few weeks ago. Almost 1200 Swiss travelers have now been brought back on charter flights. But thousands are still stuck in every corner of the world.

But there are also Swiss people who, despite Corona, deliberately do not want to return to their home country. For example, 25-year-old Swiss Michael Gerber. He has been traveling around the world for more than two years. Gerber has been stuck in a small apartment in the Colombian capital Medellín for two weeks now. There is a curfew across Colombia to contain the coronavirus. The Swiss can only get out for purchases.
