"Prof. Andrzej Horban is an outstanding specialist, a mentor in his field and national consultant on infectious diseases, whose opinion and advice I have used since the outbreak of the pandemic. Today I have decided that he will head a new, special group of government epidemiological advisors. We are formalising our cooperation so far, and we are constantly improving the procedures, using the best minds and sources of knowledge that Poland and the world have to offer "- wrote the head of the Polish government.

Morawiecki assured that the government is working on securing the efficient functioning of the health service during the Sars-CoV-2 pandemic.

"We are constantly working on ensuring the efficient functioning of the health service. Every day counts as do every doctor and every hand willing to help" - wrote PM Morawiecki.

On Monday, the head of government visited the warehouses of the Material Reserves Agency in Tomaszów Mazowiecki (Łódzkie), where, inter alia, purchased respirators, camp beds that can be used in temporary hospitals and the drug remdesivir, supporting the treatment of Covid-19, are stored.

Morawiecki emphasized during the briefing that all state structures are involved in the fight against the coronavirus epidemic, and this is currently the most important task of the government.

Morawiecki admitted that the second wave of the epidemic is "a gigantic challenge", also for Poland. He assured that with a possible large increase in coronavirus infections in two, three or four weeks, if the "black, bad scenario" came true, Poland would be ready with temporary hospitals.
