More children in local hospitals


More children are being admitted to hospital across the region with Covid related issues – but the numbers are not worrying, according to doctors.

The main hospitals in Geneva and Lausanne say they have more children – but none of them are in intensive care and only have mild symptoms. 

Mario Gehri, head of paediatrics in Lausanne says he’s dealing with mainly infants suffering a persistent cough or fever.

He says the main problem is staff. Many are isolating or at home because a family member needs care.  

He adds general exhaustion is also having an impact.
