Poland mulls easing Sunday trade ban as virus cases soar

14.10.2020 12:30
Poland is considering loosening a ban on Sunday trade to ease crowding in shops amid a record surge in COVID-19 cases, an official in Warsaw said on Wednesday.

“Such proposals are coming up. We are analysing them. We are in such a situation that we cannot rule out any solution,” Michał Dworczyk, head of the Polish Prime Minister’s Office, told the Wirtualna Polska news outlet.

Poland partly banned trading on Sundays in 2018. The ban was stepped up to three Sundays a month in 2019, while in 2020 trading has been prohibited on all Sundays except seven, including those in the run-up to Christmas and Easter.

The country on Wednesday reported a record 6,526 new coronavirus infections and a record 116 new deaths, its worst daily toll since the start of the pandemic.

Amid a spike in coronavirus cases, strict new rules came into effect in Poland at the weekend under which everyone is required to wear a face covering when going out in public.

Beginning Saturday, people must cover their mouths and noses when outdoors in public places as well as in many indoor environments.

New planned measures have also been announced to protect senior citizens, who are among those with the highest risk of dying from a COVID–19 infection.

The state-run statistics agency said in late August that the Polish economy contracted 8.2 percent in the second quarter of this year, after posting 2 percent growth in the first quarter of 2020.
