Due to the quarantine of the Polish PM, Poland's position at the European Council meeting, that started on Thursday afternoon, will be presented by Czech PM Andrej Babis, Polish government spokesman Piotr Mueller has told PAP. PM Mateusz Morawiecki tested negative for coronavirus on Tuesday night, after a day spent in self-isolation due to contact with a person infected with Covid-19. Morawiecki will remain in quarantine until doctors and sanitary services take relevant decisions. A two-day EU summit started in Brussels on Thursday to discuss climate, Brexit and the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Mueller told PAP that a similar situation had taken place some time ago, when the Polish PM represented the Czech Republic during another EU summit.
