What about the restrictions on November 1? The Minister of Health responds
Minister of Health Adam Niedzielski he was asked on Monday at a press conference in Szczecin, inter alia, whether there are any restrictions in the All Saints period, i.e. on November 1.
– We take into account many aspects. The situation that took place a year ago, when we had to make a decision overnight, was a completely extra-coordinated situation. This year we do not expect decisions to be made in such an emergency, because we are better protected – he said.
As he added, referring to better preparation, “it does not only mean that almost 60 percent of the adult population is vaccinated, but that, in principle, at the level of each province, we have prepared very detailed plans for the development of infrastructure and depending on how it is going to be. the rate of growth of infections was regional, so decisions will be made. ” – From this point of view, our organizational and health protection seems to be an element that does not justify making such drastic decisions – he stressed.
