Polish state firms to create field hospitals as virus surges: PM’s aide

30.10.2020 11:30
Six large Polish state-controlled companies have been ordered to set up field hospitals with more than 3,000 extra beds for COVID-19 patients amid a surge in the pandemic, the prime minister's chief of staff said on Friday.

Michał Dworczyk told public broadcaster Polish Radio that, following a decision by Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, such temporary hospitals were expected to be created in cities including Płock and Ostrołęka in Poland’s central Mazowieckie province, which has been hard hit by the coronavirus.

New field hospitals will also be built in the northern Pomorskie region and in Śląskie and Małopolskie provinces in the south, Dworczyk said.

Amid an escalating outbreak, Poland this month announced plans to set up a network of temporary hospitals to treat coronavirus patients.

Officials on Thursday launched one such facility at the National Stadium in Warsaw.

State-owned companies including refiners PKN Orlen and Lotos, copper giant KGHM and Bank PKO BP will now step in to help open more makeshift hospitals in worst-affected areas, Dworczyk told the media on Friday.

Poland reported a record rise in coronavirus infections for the fourth consecutive day on Friday, confirming 21,629 new cases, the most since the pandemic hit the country in early March.

A total of 340,834 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Poland since the pandemic began, and 5,351 have died in connection with the COVID-19 respiratory disease so far, officials announced.
