The ‘superspreader’ was at the Rooftop 42 bar on the Rue du Rhone on Saturday.

The man was in the club for only 90 minutes. He says the staff weren’t wearing masks and the bar was very crowded, making social distancing impossible. 

In addition to those who’ve tested positive, another 30 of the man’s family also have to isolate, as he attended a reunion party. 

The Geneva Health Department says a general closing of nightclubs could be possible if the infection rate doesn’t start to flatten.
