A survey for BIG InfoMonitor, a firm that collects data about debt, found that when financial problems hit, 16 percent of Poles were likely to fall behind in paying money owed to telecoms companies.

Fifteen percent were likely to stop paying utility bills, and 12 percent their rent.

In the second quarter of this year, the total amount owed by Poles to telecoms companies rose by PLN 138.5 million (EUR 31m, USD 37m) to PLN 1.31 billion, according to BIG InfoMonitor.

The number of debtors rose by almost 33,000 to nearly 367,000.

A total of 53,676 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Poland since the start of the pandemic, and 1,830 have died from the COVID-19 respiratory disease so far, officials said on Wednesday.
