The head of the Polish Ministry of Health, Adam Nedzelsky, announced the introduction of a national lockdown across the country starting on Saturday. This was reported by “European Truth” with reference to RMF24. Lockdown is being introduced due to the significant increase in infections across the country. The restrictions are scheduled to run until April 9. According to the Minister, the British version of the coronavirus has already been detected in 52% of new patients. Nedzelsky did not rule out that if the situation worsens, the restrictions will be tightened by Easter. The government of Mateusz Morawiecki decided to extend the restrictions in force in four voivodships, including Warsaw, to the whole of Poland. In particular, hotels and accommodation will be closed (except for workers’ hotels, as well as accommodation provided as part of business trips). Shopping malls (excluding grocery stores, pharmacies, press kiosks), cinemas, theaters, concert halls, operas, museums, ski slopes, swimming pools, water parks, gyms, saunas, restaurants, bars, tennis courts and casinos are also closed. Poland reportedly reported 25,052 daily cases of coronavirus, the highest since November.
