Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said on Wednesday that he believed that Poland would successfully overcome the coronavirus disease.

In a Facebook post, the prime minister said he was sure the Poles' rationality, resourcefulness and sense of responsibility will help them defeat the pandemic and enter the new year with fresh hope.

"I am convinced that the responsibility, strength and wisdom of Poles will allow us to overcome the virus and, together, enter the new year of 2021; a year of hope, and a return to normality," Morawiecki wrote.

On Saturday, Morawiecki outlined a set of new pandemic regulations dubbed "One hundred days of solidarity in the fight against Covid-19."

In a Facebook post following the presentation, he said that his government was taking pains to avoid freezing social and economic life in the country, but stressed the need for "reduced social mobility" during the pandemic.
