Poland’s president at the end of last month signed into effect a massive relief package aiming to shore up the economy and shield the nation from the impact of an intensifying coronavirus outbreak.
Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has told reporters that the total value of that anti-crisis package, which also seeks to guarantee the security of the country’s financial system, will come to PLN 212 billion (EUR 47 billion, USD 52 billion), an amount equivalent to around 10 percent of Poland’s GDP.
A total of 4,666 people have tested positive for the COVID-19 disease in Poland, with 129 deaths from the coronavirus so far, officials said on Tuesday afternoon.
