Prime minister: We decided to cancel all mass events

Our actions are based on the recommendations of epidemiologists and the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate. We want to be responsible and wise before any harm occurs - said Mateusz Morawiecki after the meeting of the Government Crisis Management Team (RZZK).

We have decided to take the step which is now being introduced by France and Germany, which admit that they took it too late - said the Prime Minister. We want to take it on time he added. 

Mateusz Morawiecki emphasised that the government is introducing precautionary measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus and limit its social effects. The coronavirus is a real and global threat. The WHO suggests to take radical measures to limit the spread of the virus. With a sense of responsibility, we hold the principle that prevention is better than cure he concluded.

 The Prime Minister then took part in the meeting of the National Security Council. It will be attended by representatives of the government and the parliamentary opposition.
