During a press conference on Monday, Dr. Grażyna Cholewińska, the head of the Hospital for Infectious Diseases on Warsaw’s Wolska Street, said that the investment included decontamination cabins, changing rooms and bathrooms.
"Every now and again, we see a new epidemic caused by the outbreak of a completely new pathogen or new strain of an old pathogen – be it SARS, then bird flu, swine flu, and now we're concerned about Ebola,” Dr Cholewińska told reporters. (rg)
