This is not good news, said MP Bolesław Piecha (PiS) to Faktach po Faktach, commenting on the resignation of the majority of members of the Medical Council at the prime minister. MP Michał Wypij (Understanding) called the decision of specialists advising on the COVID-19 pandemic “a kind of act of despair”.
13 out of 17 members of the Medical Council at the prime minister, he resigned from advising the government on the COVID-19 epidemic. They wrote in a statement that their decision was driven by “the recommendation’s lack of impact on real action” and the “growing tolerance” of the government for “COVID-19 denied environmental behavior and the importance of vaccination in fighting the pandemic.”
PiS MP: This is not good news
The resignation of the majority of the members of the Council was discussed in “Fakty po Faktach” on TVN24 by Law and Justice MP Bolesław Piecha, who is a trained doctor, and Michał Wypij, MP for the Agreement.
According to Piecha, “this is not good news for the prime minister, and I mean for us, parliamentarians and citizens.” – This is a team of outstanding specialists, we probably do not have better specialists, and it is not possible to quickly assemble a team of specialists that have slowly eaten their teeth in this pandemic, which has been going on for two years – he assessed. – Its recommendations, because they are not decisions, should be honored or at least somehow discussed with the prime minister – said the PiS MP.
The TVN24 guest also stated that “after two years of learning the epidemic, because it is changing, we should, however, start to draw conclusions and some political decisions should be bolder.”
– I am speaking in the context of the so-called Hoca Actshould be passed. This is not an act on compulsory vaccinations, it is an act that only gives the right to the employer, or those who carry out an activity, to verify whether I or my colleague, my employee is vaccinated or not – he explained.
– I do not understand those who oppose it – added Piecha.
Drink: It was an act of despair
According to Wypija, the resignation of most members of the Medical Council “was a kind of despairing act of people who are characterized by vast knowledge and experience”. The deputy said that the members of this body “devoted their time, commitment, experience and knowledge to save human lives”, and “they lost this fight to a group of anti-vaccine workers, which today dictate the terms of the game to the leadership of the Law and Justice party.”
