At the premiere, the Medical Council considers additional restrictions for unvaccinated people, a solution similar to those in force in some European countries. – As long as we have 200 infections a day, we can still convince you. The situation will change with a thousand infections a day – said Professor Andrzej Horban, head of the Medical Council on TVN24.
On Thursday, the guest of the “Tak jest” program on TVN24 was Professor Andrzej Horban, head of the Medical Council at the premiere, national consultant in the field of infectious diseases. He was asked whether introducing such restrictions in Poland as, for example, in France, where unvaccinated persons cannot enter cinemas or restaurants, is being considered.
– We are thinking about this variant. We are very close to that. But please pay attention to the situation of employers. Restaurants have been closed for over a year, some have fallen into trouble, and many have been in trouble. Blocking the developing traffic back is again blocking this economy, he stressed.
As he said, “as long as we have 200 infections a day, we can still wait and focus on convincing”. When will the restrictions be tightened? – Definitely a thousand or more than a thousand infections a day. At this point, we will stop sounding the alarm and we will be very clearly urging to limit our activities, said Horban.
Compulsory vaccinations? Horban: Our hand itches to recommend
Horban was also asked if the Medical Council would recommend the introduction of compulsory vaccinations against COVID-19: – Our hand itches to recommend. At least for adults, for certain groups who are at high risk of infection.
– The time will come for it, as soon as it grows, we will begin to forcibly vaccinate. A little bit more. (…) I hope that the government will make vaccinations compulsory – he added.
Until Thursday, 35,621,237 doses of various vaccines against COVID-19 were administered in Poland. 18,309,754 people are fully vaccinated.
