Officials have voiced alarm at the rapidly rising number of patients who need hospital treatment after contracting COVID-19.

The health ministry said its recommendation was issued in order to "ensure there are additional beds for patients needing urgent admission to hospital."

It added, however, that patients’ cases should be assessed individually, while diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients should continue.

Public health officials have warned that the daily number of new COVID-19 infections in the country is starting to rise in a worrying new trend.

Poland on Monday reported 6,170 fresh infections and 32 more deaths, bringing its total number of cases during the pandemic to 1,801,083 and fatalities to 45,317.
