The regionalization of restrictions is the variant most often considered by the government to introduce new restrictions, according to RMF FM journalists. It is postulated by the Ministry of Health, among others.
In theory, regionalization of restrictions would consist in the fact that new restrictions will be introduced where there is now the greatest infection rate. In those regions where the situation is worst, the most seriously contemplated scenario is the imposition of restrictions on trade, sport and culture.
Over the last 24 hours, 6,310 coronavirus infections have arrived in Poland. Most in Mazovia (1028), in the province Warmian-Masurian (725) and Pomeranian (515).
However, the largest daily increase in infections concerns the province. Warmia-Masuria Province.
“If for the whole of Poland the scale of daily infections in the last week is about 19 per 100 thousand. inhabitants, in the Warmińsko-Mazurskie voivodeship alone, that is about 42 new infections (per 100,000 – ed.) daily. The next voivodships are Pomorskie – within 29 infections per 100,000. infections and voiv. Lubuskie within 26 infections per 100 thousand. inhabitants “- said the spokesman of the Ministry of Health, Wojciech Andrusiewicz today.
In the province In the Warmian-Masurian Voivodeship, a bad situation prevails especially in the strip from Nidzica through Olsztyn and Olsztyn poviat to Bartoszyce and Bartoszyce poviats.
“For another day in a row we are at the forefront of infections in the country“- admits the provincial sanitary inspector Janusz Dzisko.
He points out that there are cases of repeated infections in the region.
“Not everyone who has had Covid-19 developed antibodies and they get sick again. We analyze one case of a patient who is re-infected only six months after the previous infection“- added Dzisko.
The most likely changes to be announced by the government tomorrow also apply protective masks and borders.
The government is about to enter an order to cover the face with a protective mask: no matter whether it is surgical or ordinary fabric. It will no longer be possible to protect against the coronavirus only with a visor, handkerchief or scarf.
Second, the government is to introduce the rule that Only people with a negative coronavirus test result can freely enter Poland. If someone does not have such a test, then regardless of how they come to Poland, they will have to be quarantined.
The government discussion also concerns the closings of shops, ski slopes and possibly cinemas. No final decisions were made on this matter.
The analyzes of the Ministry of Health show that We are facing a month of continuous increase in the number of infections. The summit is expected at the turn of March and April. This year, Easter falls on April 4-5. Family gatherings increase the risk of an increase in infections – and this is in the expected peak of the third wave of the pandemic.
This means that the next easing of the coronavirus restrictions should not be expected until mid-April. Perhaps then, restorers and gym owners may think about opening up.
The current restrictions were introduced on February 12 for two weeks. Their extension, aggravation or alleviation was to depend on the number of coronavirus infections. “Mwe try to be ready for different variants. Covid-19 is unpredictable“ then Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki argued.
- Hotels and accommodation open with 50 percent occupancy.
- Open cinemas, theaters, philharmonics, operas with 50 percent occupancy (no consumption).

- 10-day quarantine for people crossing the Polish border with organized transport.

Most, because 33.7 percent Poles expect the government to maintain pandemic restrictions at the current level. However, not much less, i.e. 33.2%, counts the group that would prefer to ease the restrictions – This is one of the conclusions of the latest survey conducted by the United Survey for RMF FM and “Dziennik Gazeta Prawna”.
If, due to the growing number of coronavirus infections, the Council of Ministers had to introduce new restrictions, then, according to the respondents, the first ones should be: an order to wear only masks, closing shopping malls, and suspending the operation of stationary cinemas, museums and theaters.
