The country’s Health Ministry reported 657 new cases and seven deaths, taking the total number of cases since the pandemic began to 45,688 and the death toll to 1,716. Officials said 227 of the new cases were in the Silesia region, where there has been an outbreak among coal miners.
Poland has reported fewer cases of COVID-19 than some other European countries but the number of new infections is climbing.
And a Health Ministry spokesman said high numbers of new cases were expected over the coming days.
Government spokesman Piotr Muller said Warsaw would discuss the situation and what action to take at a meeting today as the number of coronavirus cases continues to rise across Europe.
He said: “We will discuss current restrictions and their execution and there will also be a discussion about introducing quarantine rules from certain countries.”
Poland’s Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki warned yesterday that further restrictions could be reintroduced to curb the spread.
