The former chief sanitary inspector, doctor of medical sciences and general Andrzej Trybusz commented on the growing number of infections and the actions of the government on the coronavirus on Friday on TVN24. He assessed that “nothing is done in our country”. In his opinion, controlling the wearing of masks is “fiction”. – The police will not run after people without masks, because they have a thousand other cases and even if they issue a thousand fines a day, it really does not matter in the population scale – he said.
It was published on Friday appeal by scientists from the COVID-19 advisory team of the Polish Academy of Sciences. Scientists are “with great concern” watching the rapidly increasing number of people infected with the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the number of people hospitalized for COVID-19. Their “serious concern” is also caused by the “lack of response from the state authorities adequate to the seriousness of the epidemic situation”. They stated that “when confronted with the fourth wave of COVID-19 cases in Poland, each of us has been left to fend for ourselves.”
“In this situation, we make a warm appeal to all those who previously showed responsibility and accepted the COVID-19 vaccine to get a booster dose as soon as possible,” they wrote.
Former head of GIS: these are sham activities
The scientists’ appeal was addressed on Friday by the former chief sanitary inspector, doctor of medical sciences and general Andrzej Trybusz on TVN24. He said he fully agrees with him. He stressed that “nothing is done in our country”.
He noted that it was said that “we will enforce” the obligation to wear masks, and that “the flagship idea is that there will be protection in shopping malls”.
– It’s all fiction. These are apparent actions – assessed Trybusz. – The police, so to speak, will not run after people without masks, because they have a thousand other cases and even if they issue a thousand fines a day, it really does not matter on a population scale – he emphasized.
– Same limits as they talk about – in coffee shops, gyms, anywhere else. After all, no one checks it – he noted. – Well, the limit is “x” and the number of people vaccinated up to the limit is not counted. Who is verifying it? This is simply a fiction – the former head of GIS will judge.
He stressed that “each day causes more problems”. – It was a long time ago to do what in normally functioning countries, where leaders are not afraid of society, but care for its health, i.e. covid certificates. If you want to enter a public, closed place – a restaurant, gym, swimming pool, cultural facilities and so on – you are either vaccinated, or you have a current test, or you have had an illness no more than six months ago – he said.
Tribus: This wave of the COVID-19 pandemic by inaction is now unstoppable
Andrzej Trybusz also referred to the information provided by the spokesman of the Ministry of Health, Wojciech Andrusiewicz, that Poland had contracted the purchase of the drug molnupiravir against COVID-19. As he added, the batch of the drug will probably be delivered to Poland in mid-December.
Trybusz said it was important because it was a drug that proved to be quite effective in clinical trials.
However, he stressed that “no drug can replace vaccination”. – Hoping that there will be a cure, we do not vaccinate at all, it is a deceptive hope – he assessed. He added that “the drug will be helpful, but it will not solve the problem yet, and already the fourth wave, which is growing at the moment, is for sure”.
– This wave of omissions is now unstoppable – says the former head of GIS.
