The Prime minister called for reliable reporting on coronavirus

During the government's communication on the coronavirus in the Sejm, the Prime Minister appealed for this matter not to be used for political games between parties. We are all on a battlefield, but let it be a field of battle against the coronavirus, not a front for political struggle. Here we all have to be on one side said the Prime Minister.
