"The conversation concerned the aid Polish doctors bring and cooperation between our doctors and their counterparts from Italy", he stated.

“It is very important to act preemptively amid the disease’s development, to use knowledge about what is happening in other countries,” the presidential spokesman added.

Błażej Spychalski also mentioned that Polish doctors had been talking about the medical procedures implemented in Italy.

"The President thanked and congratulated the doctors who went to Italy. Their presence shows a good level of cooperation with our Italian friends. It really matters, especially at this difficult moment,” the spokesman concluded.

On March 30, the team of Polish doctors was deployed to a hospital in the city of Brescia, the second-largest in the Lombardy region, one of the most affected by the coronavirus.

The mission's objective is to exchange experiences on the forms and ways of organising the national health system in terms of effectiveness in combating the coronavirus epidemic. Military medics will stay in Italy until April 9.

This act garnered praise from the European Commission head Ursula von der Leyen, who called it as an example of the current “surge of compassion” travelling across Europe.
