Residents of Warsaw reacted on Saturday to new measures aimed at fighting the sharp rise of COVID-19 infections across the country.
The government announced 'red zone' restrictions stopping short of a natiowide lockdown. Bars and restaurants will be closed and school classes moved online as 13,600 new cases were registered nationwide on Friday.
«I am not afraid of infections or the pandemic, as you can see I'm walking without a mask,» explained Edyta, a resident of Warsaw, adding: «It all depends on us personally how we perceive it.»
«I don't know anyone who got sick and I'm not afraid myself, otherwise I wouldn't leave the house,» said Krzysztof, who was once in quarantine for 14 days.
On Saturday, Polish President Andrzej Duda became yet another world leader who tested positive for the novel coronavirus.
