The latest deaths in Poland’s coronavirus outbreak are 139 people with pre-existing medical conditions and 49 who died directly because of COVID-19, the Polish health ministry said in a tweet.

Of the new cases confirmed, the most – 1,280–  were in the central region of Mazowieckie, which contains the national capital Warsaw.

A total of 858,895 people have now recovered from the disease in Poland, the health ministry added.

60 million doses

Poland has reserved and bought over 60 million doses of coronavirus vaccines from six leading world producers, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced on Tuesday.

The head of the prime minister’s office, Michał Dworczyk, said that vaccinations would start in January, but the exact date depended on the producers.

On Saturday, the government announced that over 8,000 facilities had applied to be registered as coronavirus vaccination sites.

Second wave hits hard

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

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

The government has announced that restaurants, cinemas, theaters and gyms will remain closed until at least December 27.

Schools and universities throughout the country have returned to distance learning.

Under restrictions announced in October, 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.
