The quarantine period for people testing positive for Covid-19 will be shortened to seven days, the Polish prime minister announced on Friday, adding that he had appointed a new Medical Council to advise on tackling the pandemic.
A new body for fighting the coronavirus pandemic will replace the Medical Council, which has so far advised the government, the health minister has announced.
The head of the Civic Coalition (KO) caucus, the biggest opposition grouping in parliament, has accused the government of a lack of strategy in the fight against the coronavirus pandemic.
Thirteen out of the 17 members of the Medical Council, the body which advises the government on the pandemic, have quit owing to the "lack of impact of its recommendations on real actions."
Thirteen of the seventeen members of the Medical Council have resigned from advising the Polish government on the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the council's statement sent to PAP.
