– Swiss health authorities’ efforts to block the corona 19 strain from the UK are in danger of being in vain. Hundreds of British tourists disappear from a famous Swiss ski resort, violating self-isolation guidelines.

As this fact became known, the Swiss society was upset and hatred toward foreigners who spoke English was spreading, the local media reported.

According to the British Daily Guardian on the 27th (local time), the Swiss quarantine authorities said that hundreds of British people staying at the Verbier Ski Resort in Bagnes Autonomous Region, Switzerland, violated self-isolation guidelines and disappeared. Verbier Ski Resort is a vacation spot frequented by British people, so called’Little London’. During winter, one in five tourists in the area were filled with British, the Guardian said.

With the recent spread of the highly spreading corona 19 virus in the UK, the Swiss quarantine authorities ordered all British citizens who entered the country after the 14th to self-isolate for ten days.

Among the British staying at Verbier, 420 were quarantined under these guidelines. However, “at least half of them disappeared after a day of quarantine orders,” the local media said.

– At least 200 people violate the quarantine guidelines and are outside the control of the Swiss authorities. This fact was revealed one by one by the hotel staff. If you didn’t answer the room call or the meal was still in front of the door even after time passed, there were a lot of cases where the room was already empty and disappeared.

Son Tak Jaitung said that there are no flights between Switzerland and the UK since the 20th, so it is not clear where the tourists went, but some tourists seem to have crossed over to neighboring countries such as France. Some guests called from France and asked if they had to pay for their stay as originally booked.

An official from the Bagnes Autonomous Region said, “Many people have escaped through the dark,” and “Swiss are angry with foreign tourists who speak English,” he said.
