MP Janusz Kowalski from Solidarna Polska (PiS club) said that the chairman of the Medical Council at the prime minister, Professor Andrzej Horban “threatened” him and another MP with a knife. According to him, the doctor was supposed to say that “a knife opens for him and he would be happy to use that knife”. Horban replied. – I would definitely like to say that I have never threatened anyone, especially Mr Kowalski, he assured. The August statement of the Prime Minister’s COVID-19 advisor became the subject of the dispute.
On Sunday, in the program of the 7th Day of the Week on Radio ZET, Janusz Kowalski, MP of Solidarity of Poland (PiS club) stated that “there is no worse anti-advertising for vaccinations than the shoe and arrogance of such people who threaten with a knife.” When asked who had threatened with the knife, he replied that Professor Andrzej Horban, chairman of the Medical Council at the Prime Minister.
Kowalski: Professor Horban was threatening me with a knife
– He threatened me and Mrs (Anna Maria) Siarkowska with a knife. There was no reaction from the Prime Minister (Mateusz Morawiecki) in this matter. All the time I demand that the Prime Minister recall this man from the Medical Council – said Janusz Kowalski. When asked to describe the situation, he said that it was “a public declaration by the professor that he was opening a knife and that he would gladly use it against the Members of Parliament”.
Professor Horban: I never threatened anyone
Professor Andrzej Horban, the prime minister’s advisor on COVID-19, head of the Department of Infectious Diseases for Adults at the Medical Faculty of the Medical University of Warsaw, and deputy director of the Provincial Infectious Hospital in Warsaw, also referred to these accusations in Radio ZET. – I would definitely like to say that I have never threatened anyone, especially Mr Kowalski, he said.
– On the other hand, I am very curious to see how the deputy feels, taking on his conscience hundreds of people who are dying of COVID and who have not been vaccinated because they succumbed to its propaganda – he added.
What did professor Andrzej Horban say?
Prof. On August 19, Horban was a guest of Agata Adamek in the program “Tak jest” on TVN24. The conversation concerned the development of the COVID-19 epidemic in Poland and the vaccination campaign against the coronavirus. The action carried out by MPs Kowalski and Siarkowska in one of the orphanages was commented on.
– Do you have a knife opened in your pocket when you see Members who go to the orphanage and there prevent the immunization of children? the journalist asked. – Well, yes, if I could use this knife, I would probably use it – said prof. Horban and laughed slightly.
– Perhaps sooner with a needle, to simply vaccinate them, so that they stop telling what they deliver around the world – the program leader responded. The chairman of the Medical Council replied that “there is no vaccine for stupidity, unfortunately”.
Action of the deputies in the orphanage
In July, the orphanage, whose management took care of the safety of those in its care by offering them vaccinations against COVID-19, was hit by a wave of hate by anti-vaccine workers. The Ministry of Health encouraged vaccinations, while Janusz Kowalski, MP of Solidarna Polska, and Anna Maria Siarkowska, chairman of the Parliamentary Team for Sanitaryism, both from the Law and Justice club, showed up at the facility and wanted explanations about the “signals” about “forcing” to vaccinate.
“How long will the Polish state tolerate hate attacks, this time on a care and educational facility that took care of children’s safety”? – then asked Dr. Paweł Grzesiowski, an expert of the Supreme Medical Council.
The management of the facility emphasized that the decision of the oldest adult children in the orphanage to vaccinate was voluntary, and the decisions of children over 12 who could take COVID-19 preparations willing to vaccinate were consulted with their legal guardians.
