Prime Minister of Poland Mateusz Morawiecki on October 21 stated that due to the sharp growth of the incidence, he will recommend to impose the highest level of restrictions due to Covid-19 as Reuters reported.
Poland holds a policy of introduction of local lockdowns and the offer to impose the ‘red’ zone all over the country shows the seriousness of the situation.
Less than during the recent three weeks, the number of new cases of coronavirus in the country almost doubled.
“I will recommend that we take a decision to put all of Poland in the red zone from Saturday (October 24),” Mateusz Morawiecki said.
On October 22, the new restrictions will be announced. The day before, the lower house of the Polish parliament gathered for extra meeting to discuss the bill to help an overwhelmed health system.
As we reported, Warsaw's Narodowy football stadium will soon host a temporary hospital; people with Covid-19 symptoms will be put there.
Meanwhile, the government of the Czech Republic made a decision about enhanced quarantine measures in the country from October 22 due to the growth of Covid-19 cases.
