Switzerland has recorded its highest single day increase in coronavirus infections, with 2,823 new cases recorded on Wednesday – nearly double the figure for the day before.

The figure is the latest peak in a new wave of cases to hit the Alpine nation, and comes a day ahead of an emergency coronavirus “crisis summit” called to determine how a second lockdown can be avoided.

So far, there have been a total of 68,704 laboratory-confirmed cases of coronavirus in Switzerland; 5,167 people have been treated in hospital for Covid-19; and 1,816 have died coronavirus-related deaths, according to public health authorities.
