The meeting, known as a Cabinet Council, is scheduled to be held at the presidential palace in Warsaw on Friday at 11 a.m., Krzysztof Szczerski, chief of staff to the Polish president, told reporters.
He added that Duda wanted government ministers to brief him on the state of play and planned new measures to fight COVID-19 as autumn approaches.
“We have a new health minister, and we have also entered a new school year, and at the same time the fall is coming, raising concerns over a possible double impact of the flu season and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic," Szczerski said.
He added that topics "worth addressing at this point" also included the shape of the economy after the first two quarters of the year, “including the very difficult second quarter, with a significant decline in GDP."
