Poland to go into 'national quarantine' Dec. 28-Jan. 17
Poland will enter a national quarantine from December 28 to January 17 as it struggles to contain the coronavirus, the government announced on Thursday.
The country’s health minister said that shopping malls would have to close during that period, though grocery stores and pharmacies would be exempt.
Hotels and ski slopes will also be shut, and a curfew will be imposed on New Year's Eve, with restrictions on free movement, officials said.
Anyone arriving in Poland by public transportation between December 28 and January 17 will have to undergo a 10-day quarantine.
Vaccines on the horizon
Poland plans to spend PLN 3 billion (EUR 675m, USD 820m) on over 60 million doses of coronavirus vaccines under a national inoculation programme adopted by the government.
The first vaccines are expected to arrive in Poland by the end of this year, according to officials.
First in line to be inoculated will be healthcare staff, followed by pensioners in care homes, people over 60 (with the oldest given priority), police, soldiers and teachers, officials said.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced earlier this month that his government had secured vaccines for the Polish population from six leading international drug makers.
The country is preparing to roll out its COVID-19 vaccination programme and planning around 8,000 vaccination sites nationwide, according to the Polish prime minister's top aide, Michał Dworczyk.
