A Covid patient can cost more than 100,000 francs in Switzerland


From 8 December 2021, anyone in Singapore treated for Covid-19 who has not been vaccinated will need to cover the cost of their own treatment. In Switzerland, similar ideas were raised by Swiss parliamentarian Kurt Fluri in July 2021 and by Mauro Poggia, Geneva’s health minister in August 2021. According to the newspaper 20 Minutes, the cost of caring for someone hospitalised with Covid can exceed CHF 100,000. In Switzerland, healthcare is funded collectively via compulsory insurance premiums and taxes under a system where everyone is covered for most things. A typical spell in ICU can cost between CHF 25,000 and CHF 30,000, Christophe Kaempf, a spokesperson from SantéSuisse told 20 Minutes.
