RPO on the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic
Ombudsman, Marcin Wiącek, published a report on the COVID-19 pandemic in Poland on Thursday.
In the introduction, the Commissioner for Human Rights wrote that “we are faced with the fourth wave, but the fundamental problems in the functioning of the state, legislation, organization of health care, economic activity and administrative services have not been resolved”.
“The expected change also did not take place when it comes to the sometimes disorderly manner of responding to particular threats and problems, especially uncoordinated actions at the state and local government level. The citizens’ awareness is dominated by uncertainty, a sense of randomness and unpredictability in this respect” – he wrote.
