Of the new cases confirmed on Monday, 1,734 new infections were reported in the southern coal mining region of Silesia.

The western province of Wielkopolskie, which is home to the major city of Poznań, had the second-highest number of new infections confirmed by officials on Sunday, at 1,255.

The latest deaths in Poland’s coronavirus outbreak are 45 people with pre-existing medical conditions and 19 who died directly because of COVID-19, the Polish health ministry said.

Last Thursday, Poland confirmed 621 deaths and a record 35,251 new coronavirus infections nationwide.

On November 25, the country reported its highest daily toll of 674 deaths related to the coronavirus.

Poland's first case of coronavirus infection was reported on March 4, 2020.

Amid concern that cases could surge if Poles meet with relatives and friends during the Easter period, Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has called on people to stay at home and spend time only with their immediate family.

However, Jarosław Kaczyński, the head of Poland's ruling conservative Law and Justice party, has said he believes that the epidemic will be over in a few months.
