Poland: Business owners stage car-honking COVID-19 protest in Warsaw

Hundreds of small business owners held a horn-honking car protest in Warsaw's downtown, Thursday, to call for government support amid restrictions on business brought about by the country's COVID-19 protection measures. «We can't work and we have to pay taxes, we have to pay social security. Applications (for support) are being rejected without giving any reason. Drama! Our production dropped by... Еще 90 percent,» explained a business owner at the convoy. «We make 10 percent of what we produced before. That is why we are protesting because soon we will have nothing to live from, neither will our employees,» she added. Scores of cars can be seen forming a convoy, bearing flags and banners as drivers honk their horns in protest. Polish police were on hand at the city's main roundabout where they attempted to keep the traffic flowing. According to data collected by Johns Hopkins University, Poland has reported over 14,898 cases of COVID-19 with at least 737 related deaths as of Thursday.
