On Thursday, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki met with a group of opposition politicians to brief them on his conservative government’s efforts to stave off the Covid-19 virus.

After the meeting, opposition politicians declared they were ready to work together with the government to combat the flu-like virus, state news agency PAP reported.

Tomasz Siemoniak, a prominent centrist figure, said that while his Civic Platform (PO) party, Poland’s largest opposition group, was critical of many of the government’s policies in various areas, it would support Morawiecki and his Cabinet in the battle against the coronavirus.

"Today there is no greater priority than safeguarding the health of the Polish people, and we are ready to cooperate in any form," Siemoniak, a former defence minister, said, as quoted by the PAP news agency.

Thursday’s meeting took place after the first case of coronavirus infection was confirmed in Poland this week.

The country’s health minister, Łukasz Szumowski, told reporters on Wednesday that the infected patient, a resident of Poland’s western Lubuskie province, was “feeling well” and undergoing treatment at a hospital in the city of Zielona Góra.

On Friday, European Union health ministers are scheduled to gather for a special meeting in Brussels to discuss the coronavirus outbreak in Europe.

The meeting will be held in response to a request by Poland’s Szumowski, public broadcaster Polish Radio’s IAR news agency has reported.
