Health Minister Adam Niedzielski said on Wednesday that the number of daily COVID-19 infections had doubled in the country over the past week and “drastic steps” could be necessary to counteract what he called an “explosion of the pandemic.”

Niedzielski said at the end of last month that the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic was expected to reach its height in Poland in November or December, with up to 40,000 daily cases.
