Poles are ready for tighter restrictions aimed at combating the spread of coronavirus, 86 percent of people have already limited contacts with close ones, the Dziennik Gazeta Prawna (DGP) daily wrote on Wednesday.

The latest survey by the United Surveys pollster for DGP and private radio broadcaster RMF FM showed that Poles fear coronavirus a lot, "to the extent that they are able to accept far-reaching restrictions."

The study also indicated that Poles are ready to agree even to restrict personal movement outside their own town, comply with orders to stay at home or agree to track people in quarantine using an application in mobile phones, DGP said.

According to the study, 37 percent of respondents voiced positive opinions about the new restrictions on public transport.

Ninety percent of those surveyed have already limited contacts with friends to reduce the risk of coronavirus infection, the daily added.
