REVOLT OF THE GOVERNMENT ADVISERS - Corona earthquake in Poland - Politics abroad

In Poland has the dispute about the corona-politics led to an open scandal between the consulting experts and the government.In protest against the growing influence of anti-vaccination groups, 13 out of 17 members left the Medical Council on Friday. The experts justified this in a letter to Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki with a “lack of influence” of their recommendations.“At the same time, we have observed that there is a growing tolerance for groups that deny the threat of Covid-19 and the importance of vaccination in the fight against the pandemic,” the letter reads.It was signed by leading virologists, epidemiologists and intensive care physicians. They expressly referred to the attitude of government members and senior officials. Only four members of the Council did not join. The opposition has long accused the national conservative PiS government of avoiding drastic measures in view of the comparatively low vaccination rate in order not to alienate those opposed to vaccination in its own ranks. For example, there is still no legal basis for operators of restaurants, hotels and shops to query the vaccination status of their customers. Regulations such as 2G (i.e. access only for those who have been vaccinated and those who have recovered) or 3G (i.e. also for those who have been tested) are unknown in Poland. Currently, 56.4 percent of the population has been vaccinated at least twice. About 22 percent already have a booster vaccination. According to official information, the number of corona deaths had only risen above the 100,000 mark at the beginning of the week. On Friday, the Ministry of Health reported 423 new deaths within 24 hours. This means that 101,841 people have died in connection with the virus in the country of 38 million inhabitants.
