Ticino investigates possible manslaughter in care home
Ticino prosecutors are launching criminal proceedings against three care home workers after a deadly covid-19 outbreak.
The workers are being questioned about possible manslaughter and failure to follow federal epidemic requirements.
The investigation follows after complaints from relatives of a deceased patient.
Ticino has been one of the hardest hit cantons with 17% of all deaths in Switzerland – despite only having 4% of the total population.
