Andrzej Horban: this week we will probably reach 16-20 thousand. infections daily
– We expected the third wave, unfortunately it came and we do not know what will happen – commented recently prof. Horban in Polish radio Three and, as he adds, in the fight against the pandemic, the government is “coping as much as it can handle this situation”. The course of the next wave of COVID-19, he emphasizes, will depend on the virus itself, human behavior and the availability of vaccines.
Note that on Wednesday we have almost 16 thousand. new confirmed infections, Horban agreed with the statement that “it’s not good”. – There will probably be 16-20 thousand of them this week. new infections (daily). It is very logical, we already know that because we are following the path that the countries west of us have followed ‘, said Horban.
In the context of constraints, he said full locking won’t be successful for three reasons – you can’t close all the borders, it’s hard to close the economy because it will barely “button up” and it’s also hard to lock everything at home. Horban said what you can do is pursue a harm reduction policy.
The health minister is considering easing the restrictions after Easter
In the program “Tłit” Wirtualna Polska, the Minister of Health was asked about issues related to restrictions and resignation due to concessions on 12 February. As he emphasized, various variants and scenarios are being analyzed, but “no decision has been made yet”.
Asked about the proposed poviat scope for the introduction of restrictions, the health minister said that with such a large magnitude of incidence across the country, its differentiation at the poviat level was, from his point of view, “unjustified”.
Niedzielski was also asked if this year’s Easter holidays, which fall on the first days of April, will be like a year ago. – I think unfortunately yes, but in my opinion there is something optimistic that it may be Christmas, after which we will make bolder decisions, if of course we see that this summit is behind us – he said.
When are the next decisions regarding restrictions? A government spokesman responds
No decisions have been made at this time regarding possible new restrictions. A decision on the issue will be announced no later than the end of this or early next week, government spokesman Piotr Müller reported on Monday.

Asked at a conference on media reports about the possible return of restrictions in some provinces, Müller replied that no decisions have been made at this time regarding the introduction of restrictions.
– There is media information that such decisions have been made. No, at the moment we are still analyzing issues related to the number of infections throughout the country, occupancy in terms of number of beds occupied, fans used, and the situation related to the participation of new virus mutations in the total number of cases – said a government spokesman.
