Geneva is coronavirus toast - the week

Not entirely unexpected but enough to rattle quite a few people's cages this morning - the Geneva show is off. Not postponed. Too big for that. Axed. Canned. Cancelled. News agency sources reported the announcement following the government in Bern's ban on gatherings of over 1,000 people while a hapless Palexpo 'spokesperson' declined to comment. Eventually came a press conference. Force majeure so forgeddabout suing Palexpo and good luck with nailing legal paper on the Swiss administration's front door.
