Doctors, nurses and other health workers across Poland are protesting in Warsaw against wage cuts and poor working conditions as the COVID-19 pandemic is damaging the country’s healthcare system. Health workers are protesting in Warsaw on September 12 near government buildings, holding up messages warning that the health care system could collapse due to financial conditions.
Some of the protesters have set up tents near the office of Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki. They said they would stay there until their demands were met. Meanwhile, the Minister of Health, Adam Niedzielski has announced that he will meet with the representatives of this protest on September 13 and that Prime Minister Morawiecki will also be present at this meeting. On the other hand, a hospital in New York of the United States said it will no longer perform baby births later this month, as workers have resigned because they are being asked to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
Six maternity workers have resigned over the past week from Luis County General Hospital, further exacerbating the situation. Earlier this week, U.S. President Joe Biden unveiled a decision where all employees who have more than 100 employees will require their employees proof of vaccination or they must be tested weekly for coronavirus. This decision is said to be made to stop the spread of the Delta variant, which is more contagious. Biden’s decision affects about 80 million Americans. About 17 million health workers also need to be fully vaccinated.
