Steffen, Robert; Lautenschlager, Stephan; Fehr, Jan (2020). Travel restrictions and lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic-impact on notified infectious diseases in Switzerland. Journal of Travel Medicine, 27(8):taaa180.

Abstract

Based on notification data the impact of the COVID-19 lockdown in Switzerland was assessed. While the incidence of tick-borne encephalitis almost doubled as compared to 2016-2019, a reduction in all other infectious diseases was recorded. The lowest reduction rates (<25%) were noted for legionellosis, hepatitis A, chlamydia infection and gonorrhoea.
