Authorities say it is more likely that the total blockage, but the point-of-the-day shutdown of sectors of the economy, is more likely.
In autumn, Poland may have a major economic shutdown due to the coronavirus epidemic. This was stated by Polish Deputy Finance Minister Piotr Patkowski, RMF24 reports on Saturday, August 22.
“We cannot 100% exclude the second lockdown at the same level as in the spring,” Patkovsky said.
The politician added that a different scenario is more likely.
“This will not be a total blockage, but a point disconnection of sectors of the economy. In practice, this would mean closing – and only in certain regions – cinemas, restaurants, bars and theatres. However, it all depends on the development of the coronavirus epidemic in Poland,” Patkowski said.
The day before it was reported that more than 900 cases of COVID were detected in Poland for the first time in 24 hours. The previous anti-record for contaminated coronavirus in the country was recorded on August 8 – 843 cases.
