The Polish society should unite against the coronavirus

We must act jointly and in agreement. In view of the coronavirus pandemic, it is important that we put aside our differences and work together. The Government pays close attention to advice and observations concerning the current epidemiological situation. For this reason, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has met with members of the local government to discuss the current issues and problems in each region, especially the situation in the largest cities. The Prime Minister also summarised the scope of funds directed towards actions related to the fight against the coronavirus.

Today, everyone in Poland must strive to overcome the coronavirus wave as quickly as possible. Taking care of the healthcare system, protecting the elderly and keeping the economy as intact as possible – these are the strategic goals of the Government.

Meeting with representatives of political groups

The Prime Minister emphasizes the importance of cooperation in combating COVID-19. We support cohesive and joint actions in cooperation with all social and political communities. This is aided, among others, by meetings with representatives of political groups, whom the Head of the Government has invited to talk via a videoconference.

Similar consultations with representatives of parliamentary clubs and groups took place at the beginning of March, on the initiative of the Prime Minister. This dialogue is maintained. For the Government, it is very important that such issues be agreed upon outside of divisive politics.

New safety rules throughout the country

During the fight against the coronavirus, our responsible behaviour and compliance with applicable restrictions are crucial. Effective 10 October, the entire country is designated a yellow zone, except for poviats designated a red zone.

However, regardless of zones and officially sanctioned restrictions, it is worth to adhere to the DDMA principle in everyday activities. This abbreviation stands for the most important safety rules:

  • social Distance (at least 1.5 m from others)
  • hand Disinfection (wash your hands as often as possible!)
  • Mask (which protects us and others against transmission of the virus)
  • the STOP COVID – ProteGO Safe Application, which makes it possible to quickly determine whether we were in contact with a person infected with COVID-19.

The STOP COVID – ProteGO Safe application is fully secure, free and completely optional. The more people use it, the faster and more effectively we can limit the rate and range of the spread of the coronavirus.
