Mateusz Morawiecki reminded that the borders were closed to foreigners in order to slow down the spread of coronavirus. He emphasised that by introducing appropriate procedures and changing the organisation of work, it was possible to reduce the queues on the western and southern borders. "We will do everything we can to ensure that the traffic flow is smooth in the immediate future," he added.

The Prime Minister also referred to the situation in schools. He pointed out that almost 80% of schools already use the possibility of delegating classes and checking students' knowledge remotely. He emphasised that this is a very good solution in the current situation. He also thanked all teachers, students and parents who are open to this mode of teaching.

In the context of the presented solutions for entrepreneurs, the head of the government stressed that the Anti-Crisis Shield is a transitional mechanism, aimed at protecting the Polish economy in this difficult time and enable the return to work in completely new circumstances.

Mateusz Morawiecki also thanked all those who strictly adhere to quarantine procedures. "Thanks to such discipline we will come out of this stronger and we will be able to rebuild the economy," he concluded.

Subsequently, the Prime Minister took part in a meeting with representatives of parliamentary clubs and groups in the form of a video conference.
