Things to know about the Coronavirus

The new coronavirus (Sars-Cov-2) is particularly dangerous for people over 65 years of age and people with chronic respiratory diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, diseases and therapies that weaken the immune system, cardiovascular diseases and cancer. We advise them to take particular care in complying with the recommendations of the Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH) regarding hygiene rules. You can find further information on this subject at or on the website of the FOPH.

Due to the current development around Covid-19, palliative ch has created the Task Force Focus Corona with representatives from the specialist group of doctors, nursing and pastoral care. The aim of the Task Force is to provide recommendations for health professionals on the treatment of palliative care patients in the various settings - inpatient and outpatient. In doing so, we benefit greatly from our regional network throughout Switzerland. Our guidelines are based on the experience and recommendations of our colleagues from the canton of Ticino.
