704 in hospitals, 69,160 quarantined
The Polish health ministry announced on Monday morning that 704 COVID-19 patients were in hospitals nationwide, 80 of them on ventilators, with a further 69,160 people quarantined for possible coronavirus exposure.
Meanwhile, 2,658,685 people have now recovered from COVID-19 throughout the country, the health ministry also said.
Officials have warned that the number of COVID-19 infections in the country could rise in the weeks ahead as the Delta variant of the coronavirus begins to spread more quickly.
Health Minister Adam Niedzielski said earlier this month that the daily number of new coronavirus infections in the country could reach 1,000 by the end of September and then rise to 5,000 by late October.
