Lech Wałęsa is in hospital, which he announced via Facebook. Is his son going to visit him? Journalists asked him.
Lech Wałęsa announced on Facebook on December 5 that he was “hit by COVID-19.” He attached a photo to the entry where he is lying in a hospital bed wearing a protective mask. Hundreds of Internet users wished him “good health” in the comments. His secretary, Marek Kaczmar, later said more about how the former president felt in an interview with TVN24. He admitted that he had, among other things, high temperature – fever is one of the most common symptoms of coronavirus.
Son: “I haven’t been to dad’s”
The o2.pl website contacted Jarosław Wałęsa – his 46-year-old son, a member of the Sejm of the 10th term. The first question he was asked was about his father’s health. – Unfortunately, I don’t have any new news about it. (…) I’m sorry – he replied.
In the next question, the editorial team asked the politician whether he would visit him in the hospital in the near future. – I haven’t been to my dad’s. I am currently in session of the Sejm. I don’t know when or if I will go to the hospital, he explained. He added that “he will definitely not miss the beginning of the parliamentary session,” replied the MP from the Civic Coalition.
The MP last saw his father over 2 months ago
Recently, in an interview with “Super Express”, the KO MP admitted that “the last time he saw his father was on his 80th birthday.” “We don’t talk on the phone at all,” he said. “Fakt” reports that, however, “they are not officially in a quarrel.”
In another interview, Jarosław Wałęsa admitted that he does not meet his family often, pointing to its size. – When you have such a large family, you don’t see everyone in one place too often. It is impossible. If you counted all of us – our parents’ children and their children’s children, we would be over 25 people. This is a really big mission to get us all together at one time in one place. With such a large family, frequent meetings in such a group are extremely difficult, he said.
On December 6, the MPs returned to the Sejm to continue the first session. The proceedings will start on December 6 at 9 a.m. and will last until December 7 – a maximum of 4:30 p.m.
