Polish Senate (upper house) Speaker Tomasz Grodzki declared on Monday that proposed amendments to the anti-crisis shield package adopted by the lower chamber were meant to improve the "imperfect" document and change it into a better, solid dam to stop the coronavirus spread.

The Senate will start its sitting at 3:00 pm on Monday to discuss a package of three bills from the anti-crisis shield draft.

Speaking to reporters, Grodzki declared that the Senate "will be standing on the side of Polish women and men, and will be doing everything so that no one should lose a job or suffer an economic loss." He added that everybody should have access to tests and underlined that the economic, health and social security of Poles should be maintained.
