Of the new cases confirmed by public health officials, the most – 4,066 – were in the southern coal mining region of Silesia.

The latest deaths in Poland’s coronavirus outbreak are 355 people with pre-existing medical conditions and 75 who died directly because of COVID-19, the Polish health ministry said in a tweet.

Poland on Tuesday reported 25,484 new coronavirus infections and 330 more deaths.

On Saturday, November 7, the country reported a record 27,875 new single-day cases, the most since the pandemic hit the country in early March.

On Friday, November 6, Poland reported its highest daily toll of 445 deaths related to the coronavirus.

The health ministry announced on Wednesday that 21,521 COVID-19 patients were in hospitals nationwide, 1,975 them on ventilators, with a further 431,104 people quarantined for possible coronavirus exposure.

Meanwhile, 242,875 people in total have now recovered from COVID-19 throughout the country.

Tougher measures to battle COVID-19 came into effect across Poland at the end of last week following a surge in cases amid a second wave of the pandemic.

Shopping malls have been ordered to limit their operations until at least November 29, though some retail outlets, such as grocery stores, pharmacies and drugstores, will stay open to customers.

Hotels are only able to take in guests on business trips. Theatres, cinemas, museums and galleries have been told to close temporarily.

Schools and universities throughout the country have returned to distance learning, with the youngest primary school children switching to remote classes from Monday.

Under restrictions announced last month, children under 16 are only allowed to leave their homes under the supervision of an adult between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Meanwhile, pubs, restaurants and cafes are only allowed to provide take-aways and delivery orders.

Gatherings of more than five people have been forbidden, though people who live or work together are exempt from the rule.

Also, the government has appealed to people aged over 70 not to leave their homes unless necessary.

Poland last month introduced special shopping hours for people aged over 60 between 10 a.m. and noon.

Amid a spike in coronavirus cases, strict new rules came into effect in the country last month under which everyone is required to wear a face covering when going out in public.

Beginning Saturday, October 10, people must cover their mouths and noses when outdoors in public places as well as in most indoor environments nationwide.

Amid an escalating outbreak, the country has decided to set up a network of temporary hospitals to treat coronavirus patients.
