This is just extremely sad. While a lot of people just don't care at all, such persons as this minister work and worry themselves into the ground like this. And it's a recurring theme all around the world...
Aaaaaaand while medical facilities in Poland are severely reglamenting the use of safety equipement like, among other things, face masks, in order to save them up for critical situations, our glorious government decided that not only the presidential elections will go according to schedule, but also every member of the election local oversight is going to have an adequate amount of masks and gloves provided by them, just as every voter. And they started stocking up. The estimate is that the oversight personnel will require about 4,2 million face mask + single use glove pair sets for this one single day. Plus an additional set per every voter. About 13-15 million sets total if the voter attendance is below one third.
Current prime minister declared that the elections are perfectly feasible and that the quarantine was tightened exactly to make sure they happen.
Because of this, some high ranking members of municipal administration had declared civil disobedience against the goverment, and I presume more cases are to follow. At least one presidential candidate decided to withdraw their application as a form of strike against this. The National Electoral Commission pushes the government as hard as they can to move the damn election day.
