Polish PM to hold talks with opposition on virus crisis

The talks are expected to start at 2:30pm.

Ahead of the conference, Morawiecki said: “For those who don’t want any sharpened restrictions, and those who want a lockdown of the economy, we have a more appropriate idea… we need restrictions, but to a degree that won’t lead to the economy shutting down, or will lead to this only to a small extent.”

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.

Polish Health Minister Adam Niedzielski earlier this month announced “zero tolerance” towards people who flout sanitary rules, warning that offenders would be “severely punished.”

Poland reported 4,394 new coronavirus infections and 35 more deaths on Monday, bringing its total number of cases to 130,210 and fatalities to 3,039.

But with 70 COVID-19 deaths per million population, Poland remains far less affected by the coronavirus epidemic than many other countries in Europe, new statistics have shown.

Ryszard Terlecki, a senior lawmaker with the governing Law and Justice (PiS) party, told reporters on Monday that Poland is not ruling out introducing a state of emergency if the COVID-19 crisis worsens dramatically in the future.

Amid coronavirus disruption, the Polish economy contracted 8.2 percent in the second quarter of 2020, according to the country’s Central Statistical Office (GUS).
