In the Skawina municipality, the Prime Minister met with the residents and announced a reduction in bureaucracy associated with submitting applications for the "Clean Air" programme. The head of government also met with a family that benefited from the programme.

"Clean Air means lower costs for citizens and better conditions for the whole economy," said the head of government. He also emphasised the good cooperation with local governments, thanks to which the programme develops.

Mateusz Morawiecki pointed out that the aim of the government's actions is to improve air quality, saying that "healthy and Clean Air is our primary task".

"I talk a lot about the development of infrastructure in Poland. We will continue the Local Government Roads Fund. No such road reconstruction programme has been developed in at least the last 30 years," stressed the Prime Minister.

In addition, the head of government visited the Voivodeship Sanitary and Epidemiological Station in Katowice, where he talked about the actions taken with regard to the coronavirus. "At this stage of threat, Poland is applying the best practices," he assured.

The government allocated another PLN 100 million for the purchase of additional protective equipment to ensure the safety of Poles even more effectively. "Today we focus our strength, attention, experience and financial resources on the most effective prevention of the virus, and when it appears, we will focus on limiting its range and combating it," said the Prime Minister.

He also reminded to follow the recommendations of the Chief Sanitary Inspectorate and the Ministry of Health, which are available, among others, at http://gov.pl/koronawirus and https://gis.gov.pl/.
