Coronavirus in Poland. Grzesiowski: the next wave will have to be high
He talked about how the epidemic situation in Poland could develop Dr. Paweł Grzesiowski in the Thursday issue of “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24, expert of the Supreme Medical Council for combating COVID-19.
– The virus takes advantage of situations in which it can spread. These situations are interpersonal interactions, they are closed rooms and these are people who do not have immunity – he enumerated. He assessed that “in Poland we still have a lot of vulnerable people and this means that the next wave will have to be high”.
In his opinion, if among those infected “there are many seriously ill people, we will again see images of queues of ambulances outside hospitals or many occupied beds in intensive care units and, unfortunately, many deaths.”
