The French region of Bourgogne-Franche Comté contacted several Swiss cantons and asked them if they would take Covid patients, according to RTS.

Jacques Gerber, the Minister of Health of the canton of Jura told RTS that there had been a request from France to prepare in case French hospitals were overloaded.

New cases have only increased moderately in Switzerland since mid-March. In France, this number increased sharply, reaching 60,922 on April 4. The number of hospitals does not increase immediately, but after a week or so, once symptoms develop.

Currently, there are hospital spaces available, Gerber said. But hospitals must decide whether or not to accept patients based on availability.

The canton of Jura is still waiting to see what impact the recent party crowd in Moutier will have after a historic vote on hospital admissions. Participants in the gatherings were asked to test if they are showing signs of symptoms. The coming week will be crucial in determining the level of pressure on local Jura hospitals.
