In the positive scenario that the ongoing coronavirus crisis is over by the end of May, Polish GDP growth in 2020 might reach 0-0.5 percent, Finance Minister Tadeusz Kościński told public radio on Thursday.

"If we come out of this crisis by the end of May I think we will still be on 0-0.5 percent, positive," Kościński said. "But if we're talking about late May and June then we will enter a negative scenario," he added.
