More and more countries in Europe are imposing restrictions on people who have refused to receive the COVID-19 vaccine. For example, in Austria, from next week, they will not be able to go to a cafe, restaurant and hairdresser. In Poland, such solutions are not taken into account – Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki says that the government “does not want to act against a very large part of the public opinion”.

Due to the increase in the number of coronavirus infections Austrian authorities announced on Friday that from Monday people unvaccinated against COVID-19 will not be allowed to enter cafes, restaurants or hairdressing salons. Anti-vaccine workers in German federal states must also take into account similar limitations.

The Polish government does not envisage such actions. – We can see how little effective in Western Europe are the various restrictions, penalties and restrictions that are implemented there. We see gigantic demonstrations in the West, which are dispersed in a very brutal manner, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Friday.

The Prime Minister explained that the Polish government “wants to avoid this, therefore it is trying to find a golden mean”. – We do not want to go against a very large part of the public opinion – he emphasized.

– The government side is taking into account what is ignored by some commentators today, i.e. the possibility of social protests, during which infections and, consequently, deaths may also occur – he added. The head of the Polish government mentioned that he had read studies which showed that “in Germany and France, protests led to thousands of deaths”.
