Poland Covid 

Polish response is to Covid is stupid:

Here is the timeline:

1) First the government downplayed COVID, cause they wanted to win the election (it worked);
2) They kept downplaying it whole summer;
3) They focused on fucking up lifes of LGBT+ people;
4) Then they opened schools in September;
5) Nominally principals could go to remote or hybrid (some groups remote, some onsite) however doing that needs OK from Sanitation inspection that **never agrees*...

6) When schools were opened we had 500 cases daily;
7) Today its 8 000;
8) So they closed schools; One day they go: "All is fine and dandy", the next: "We close high schools and Universities". Primary schools still can't get an OK from inspections to work remotely;
9) They blamed all problems in Healthcare on doctors;
10) Couple of years ago when we had big doctor protests they were like: "If you don't like it here, emigrate". And the doctors emigrated;

11) For the last 6 month they didn't even manage to put in place proper order to wear masks. They put it in place, but in a legally improper way, and courts rule that all fines for not wearing masks are void;
12) Proper statute that forces masks was proposed by the Opposition;
13) And this is for Government that can pass statues in like 2 days (from announcing to the public to being in force);

14) They also managed to botch multiple tenders for medical stuff, eg. bought entirely not-working tests for Covid for 300mln$;
15) Curently we have some "covid sceptics" that call masks "muzzles".
16) I strongly suspects that these covid skeptics were breed when the government downplayed covid;
17) We are closing gyms, but keeping restaurants opens, also churches work without major restrictions (fun fact: some priest spread anti-covid propaganda);

18) Radical Catholics discuss whether receiving The Communion to a hand (and not directly to mouth) is offends Jesus Christ.

@jacek Huh. I didn't know they still did that. In Australia the Eucharist is usually passed to the hand. I'd love to hear the theological argument for the mouth being necessary to the sacrament.

Polish version of catholic theology 

@carlozancanaro Frankly I have no idea. The Church as an institution is for "Eucharist to hand" especially during covid.

Arguments I read (I do subscribe to some far-right catholic stuff):

1) Benedict was against it;
2) When you have Euharist in your tiny fragments of it fall to your hand and then God only knows what you can do with this hand (or they might fall on the ground), and when Eucharist to mouth there is this plater that all crumbs might fall on (also Priest hands are specially taken care of after the mass);
3) It's not traditional;
