Duda was speaking during a meeting at the presidential palace in Warsaw on Monday with healthcare staff involved in the battle against the epidemic, which has claimed over 42,000 lives in Poland.

“We did not have a situation in which there were not enough places in hospitals for people,” Duda said.

He added: “Fortunately, our doctors did not have to choose whom to give… life-saving measures, such as a respirator, and whom not to give them to."

Poland on Monday reported 3,890 new coronavirus infections and 17 more deaths, bringing its total number of cases during the pandemic to 1,642,658 and fatalities to 42,188.

The health ministry announced on Monday morning that 12,868 COVID-19 patients were in hospitals nationwide, 1,336 of them on ventilators, with a further 147,208 people quarantined for possible coronavirus exposure.

Poland’s Health Minister Adam Niedzielski warned last week that the daily number of new COVID-19 infections in the country was starting to rise again in a worrying new trend, while officials condemned irresponsible crowd behaviour after curbs were eased.
