A Swiss artist illuminated the iconic Matterhorn mountain of the Swiss Alps with a great American flag in a gesture of solidarity with the United States, as the nation is struck with the greatest coronavirus epidemic in the world by caseload alone.

The great mountain, one of the very tallest of the Swiss Alps, was covered with a great American flag beginning at 10PM local time on Wednesday. Artist Gerry Hofstetter prepared the projection from the nearby town of Zermatt. A local tourism agency, Zermatt Matterhorn, shared the technologically impressive display to the world in a press release, sharing the well wishes of the people of Zermatt with Americans.

As it stands, the USA, is the country that has been most impacted by the COVID-19 crisis with the highest number of confirmed cases. Our thoughts are with all American people at this unprecedented time. May our message convey solidarity and give you hope and strength. We look forward to meeting again at the foot of the Matterhorn, we are all in this together.”

INCREDIBLE! As a sign of solidarity, the American flag was projected onto the Matterhorn last night. Switzerland is sending hope and strength to the United States of America.

The Matterhorn is 14,690 feet tall, and was only ascended by humans for the first time in 1865.

No nation or government has the ability to bring an end to the coronavirus epidemic, but well wishes from some of America’s oldest friends are appreciated by many in these troubled times.

Japan: Number of October Suicides Exceeded All COVID-19 Deaths Throughout 2020

The cure should not be worse than the problem itself.

Japan has seen more of its people die in one month from suicide than from total COVID-19 deaths in 2020.

Japan’s National Police Agency reported that 2,153 people committed suicide in the month of October, while fewer than 2,000 people have died from COVID-19 all year.

While it is true that Japan has historically had high rates of suicide compared to other nations, suicides had generally decreased throughout 2020.

Despite the high number of suicides in October, the Japanese have avoided implementing draconian lockdowns and restrictions for the most part, though they have been seeing record high numbers of cases in the month of November. Thus it should be interesting to see what their suicide numbers for this month look like.
