How to fight coronavirus?

Out of concern for the safety of all Poles, the team of the Polish Medical Mission reiterates the basic principles to be observed in the fight against coronavirus. In order to stop the spread of the virus, we should avoid crowded places and preferably stay at home. We still do not know much about the disease caused by coronavirus or the virus itself so prevention and social responsibility are the most important for our safety.

What do you do if you suspect you might have coronavirus?

First of all, do not panic. Our first instinctive thought is to call the emergency services (112/999). Do NOT do that. There is a special patient helpline on 800 190 590 where you can get all the information and further instructions concerning COVID-19.

Do not conceal any important facts when talking to your doctor or the emergency medical dispatcher. If you were on a long journey 2 weeks ago or met people who were infected, tell the truth. This is valuable information that will protect your doctors from direct contact with you. Tell them about all the symptoms you feel.

Do you want to know if you are prepared?
Take the test available on Instagram.

What is the current situation concerning the disease?

Try to use reliable and proven sources of information, for example:
