Poland to Use 1st Wave to Help avoid Lockdown

September 28, 2020

WARSAW, Poland — Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki says that the experience from the first wave of the coronavirus will help Poland go through the new wave that the nation is seeing with the least possible cost to the economy.

Morawiecki says the focus will be on widest possible access to medication. He says the government wants to avoid another social and economic lockdown like the one that was introduced in March.

Poland is recently seeing a steep rise in coronavirus cases to some 1,500 per day. The number of people put on breathing support has doubled since July, to around 130.

The Health Ministry says it is well prepared for the new wave. Of some 88,600 registered cases, around 2,500 people have died. Out of 6,300 beds for COVID-19 patients, approximately 4,000 remain available along with some 670 respirators.


BEIJING (AP) — Genetic material collected at a Chinese market near where the first human cases of COVID-19 were identified show raccoon dog DNA comingled with the virus, adding evidence to the theory that the virus originated from animals, not from a lab, international experts say.
