Things should return to normal in two to three months and let’s hope we will not have to wait three months for the economy to reopen, Poland’s finance minister has said.

Tadeusz Koscinski told private TV channel Telewizja WP that coronavirus restrictions were posing a problem for the Polish economy and businesspeople, however, there was a chance that they could be relaxed no later than on April 9.

"We are not an island, you can see that… the third wave is far stronger than the first and second waves, and stronger than most expected," he said.

The minister added that talks were still ongoing with sectors most affected by the lockdown.

"We need to help them and we're discussing ways... It's important to give this assistance quickly," he stated. (PAP)
