Poland on Monday reported 2,543 new coronavirus infections and 25 more deaths, bringing its total number of cases during the pandemic to 1,591,497 and fatalities to 40,832.

Health Minister Adam Niedzielski told reporters: "There is a trend that has not occurred for many, many weeks. Because up to now we have mainly been seeing a reduction in the daily number of infections."

Rowdy scenes

Meanwhile, the official spearheading the government’s inoculation drive condemned the “absolute irresponsibility” of rowdy crowds over the weekend in the popular southern mountain resort of Zakopane.

Visitors flocked to the town after hotels and ski slopes were allowed to reopen on Friday amid signs of a let-up in the spread of the coronavirus.

Several thousand came out on the streets of the town on Saturday, with alcohol-fuelled fights breaking out, state news agency PAP reported.

Police were called out to dozens of incidents, while revellers on Zakopane’s well-known Krupówki street started an impromptu dance.

The prime minister's top aide, Michał Dworczyk, who is leading the government’s vaccination campaign, said: "Restrictions have been lifted for a period of two weeks and if the situation worsens, they may come back.”

He added: “These kinds of events [in Zakopane] pose a real risk that there will be more and more [COVID-19] cases, and as a consequence we will have to close some branches of the economy again."
