President Andrzej Duda in an interview with the US correspondent of “Facts” TVN in the United States, Marcin Wrona, talked about, inter alia, vaccinations against COVID-19. “I encourage you to get vaccinated,” he said. “This greatly, significantly, greatly increases the likelihood that nothing bad will happen to us, even if we fall ill,” he added.
President Andrzej Duda, during his visit to the USA in connection with the participation in the 76th session of the UN General Assembly, gave an interview at the Consulate General of the Republic of Poland in New York to the correspondent of “Fakt” TVN in the United States, Marcin Wrona.
Among other things, the president was asked if he was afraid of the coronavirus infection due to the fact that it was confirmed by officials from Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro, with whom he had seen in the US.
– I can say this: no, I am not afraid (…), because not only did I have the coronavirus almost a year ago – because it was the turn of October and November, and then I had antibodies after passing, because it was checked that they are – then I was I vaccinated and the doctors guarantee that in no dangerous way – even if I get infected – I should not go through it – replied Duda. – I approach it on the basis of: well, if I get infected, I will survive again, but no serious consequences, I believe it, it should not cause my health – he explained.
– Therefore, yes, I encourage you to get vaccinated – said the president. – This significantly, significantly, significantly increases the likelihood that nothing bad will happen to us, even if we get sick, even if we come into contact with a person who is a carrier of the coronavirus or is simply ill – he argued. As he said, “at most we will have some ‘light flu’ and then we should recover quickly.”
Andrzej Duda reiterated that he encouraged vaccinations and assessed that “it would be good if a larger percentage of our society were vaccinated”. – The truth is that the higher the percentage of vaccinated people, the smaller the next wave of cases should be, the less severe are the cases and, of course, the fewer people who could potentially die, unfortunately, added the president.
