Here is the statement of KOD UK on this issue:

On 26 January 2021 we received the news of the death of Sławomir, a Polish citizen, who passed in a hospital in Plymouth. We would like to extend our sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of the deceased. We would also like to express our firm opposition to the exploitation of the tragedy by right-wing journalists and politicians in Poland. We consider any further dissemination of false information about the circumstances of the death of our fellow countryman to be scandalous and degrading to our identity as Poles. We call for an immediate cessation of these practices and for respecting the peace which should accompany every loss of human life. We would also like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation and gratitude toward the NHS workforce, who treat and save the lives of millions of people every day, regardless of their nationality, race or religion, including almost a million Poles living in the UK.
