Growing concerns

Summer holidays have come and gone. Many people wondered whether September would mark a comeback to reality, and initially it might have seemed that this was the case. Youngsters came back to school, children started going to kindergarten again, and the beginning of the month brought beautiful summer weather. Unfortunately, it quickly became clear that COVID-19 was still here to stay. The daily number of new cases broke the 1000 mark, with new record highs arriving one after the other, including in the number of deaths. So how does consumer sentiment look now, with Autumn just around the corner, support from the government's anti-crisis shield programme running out, and restrictions connected with the rising number of new cases looming over all areas of life?

 

Our Consumer Index dropped three months in a row. This outcome results from the deterioration of all of its constituent indicators - ones describing the country-wide situation as well as personal perceptions. Poles are not optimistic as far as the condition of the country or predictions for the future are concerned. Even though their perception of their own household finances is slightly more favourable than that of the national budget, predictions for the future are not reassuring - the situation is going to stay more or less the same, or even continue to decline .

 

Fears connected with the pandemic do not seem to have dispersed either. So, will our national health system measure up to the challenge of the epidemic and the upcoming seasonal wave of cold and flu cases?
