Will and when the regions with the lowest vaccination coverage will be subject to restrictions? Health Minister Adam Niedzielski confirmed that such areas would be restricted “in the first place”. He listed four regions here.
Minister of Health Adam Niedzielski On July 23, he reported that the parameter that will mainly determine the restrictions is the regional level of vaccination in the regions concerned. When asked whether the government was considering the regionalization of restrictions due to the number of vaccinated people in a given region, he replied: – Absolutely.
On Wednesday at the conference of Bialystok Niedzielski was asked about this matter. – What would such restrictions consist and when would they be introduced? the journalist asked. – So far, the number of infections does not entitle us to introduce such restrictions yet. Today, if I remember correctly, we had 164 new cases nationwidewhich is not a result that would cause us great concern, although the growing tendency is certainly worrying – he replied.
Speaking about the restriction, Niedzielski said that “he absolutely upholds this declaration that those areas with low levels of vaccination will be subject to restrictions in the first place.” – Because there is a greater risk of coronavirus transmission – he explained.
He stated that the least vaccinated regions are: Podkarpacie, Lubelszczyzna, Podlasie, as well as Warmia and Masuria. – The responsibility of the inhabitants is not only responsibility for their own health, but also for the socio-economic success of these regions – he said.
Speaking about the restrictions, the minister of health indicated that “it will be the same sequence that we had to deal with before.” When can we expect such restrictions? – When there is a large number of infections, certainly exceeding a thousand cases a day – indicated the Minister of Health.
He stated that “less than a thousand (new cases of infection per day) the government will not introduce” any such drastic measures “.
