Britons Flee to Switzerland to Escape Quarantine


Dec 30, 2020

About half of the Britons who were ordered to wait out their quarantine in the ski resort of Verbier have gone into hiding. Swiss authorities began to suspect something unusual when their meals were left untouched.

Hundreds of British guests put in quarantine over the new, more infectious variant of the coronavirus have fled the Swiss ski resort of Verbier, with some reemerging in neighboring France, Swiss authorities reported on Sunday.

Verbier, an alpine village located in the municipality of Bagnes in Canton Valais, is a popular ski destination for British tourists.

Bagnes spokesperson Jean-Marc Sandoz said Swiss authorities had identified 420 guests from the United Kingdom who had been ordered into quarantine before Christmas.

About 50 fled immediately, and of the 370 others less than a dozen were still there on Sunday, he said, adding that some of the guests have reappeared in France.

“Many of them stayed in quarantine for a day before they set off unnoticed under cover in the darkness,” he said.

According to local media, hoteliers began to suspect a “secret departure” because calls to quarantine rooms “were repeatedly unanswered” and meals left in front of rooms “had not been touched.”

“That was the worst week our community has ever experienced,” Sandoz told newspaper Sonntags Zeitung, calling it an “unprecedented situation.” He said Bagnes felt abandoned by both the federal and regional governments.

Swiss ‘understand’ Brits’ frustration

Sandoz condemned Switzerland’s decision to hastily impose quarantine requirements for people arriving from the UK.

“We understand their anger,” he said. On December 20, Switzerland blocked all flights from the UK and South Africa in connection to the new variants of the coronavirus found in those countries.

A day later, Swiss authorities ordered all people having arrived since December 14 to be quarantined retroactively for 10 days from their date of arrival.

    1. FEDUP ….YOU ARE CORRECT……….except for Trump ………leaders are not strong enough to attack this . Every nation should stop importing from China !

  2. China is the culprit of all the problems the world is facing. These problems won’t happen though without the involvement of greedy ” deep state” composed of big time businessmen and corrupt officials in government that control the media. Let us all unite with Trump to eliminate any of these evil elements in government. Keep up your spirits & hope for Trump’s policies that they will prevail. Fight China & corruption.
