Of the new cases confirmed on Monday, the most—2,116—were in the central Mazowieckie province, which includes the national capital Warsaw.

Meanwhile, 1,638 new infections were reported in the densely populated southern coal-mining region of Silesia.

The latest deaths in Poland’s coronavirus outbreak are 17 people with pre-existing medical conditions and 8 others who died directly because of COVID-19, the health ministry said.

On Sunday, Poland confirmed 45 deaths and 22,389 new coronavirus infections nationwide, compared with 502 deaths and 25,576 fresh cases a day earlier.

On April 8, the country reported its highest daily toll of 954 deaths related to the coronavirus.

On April 1, the Polish health ministry confirmed 35,251 new single-day cases, the most since the pandemic hit the country early last year.

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

2,706 in hospitals, 616,905 quarantined

The Polish health ministry announced on Monday morning that 2,706 COVID-19 patients were in hospitals nationwide, 1,989 of them on ventilators, with a further 616,905 people quarantined for possible coronavirus exposure.

Meanwhile, 26,465 people have now recovered from COVID-19 throughout the country, the health ministry also said.

Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki on Monday said that the government would announce new restrictions for the Christmas period and to combat the new, highly contagious strain of the coronavirus, omicron, before the end of the week. They could include compulsory vaccination in some professions and stricter curbs for the unvaccinated, the state PAP news agency reported. 

Poland this month imposed a temporary ban on flights to seven African countries amid concerns over omicron. 

In other new COVID-19 restrictions, cultural institutions, churches, sports centres, hotels and restaurants across the country are only allowed to be half full from December 1 to December 17.

The limits do not apply to people vaccinated against the coronavirus.

Health Minister Adam Niedzielski told reporters last week that the fourth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic was expected to reach its height in Poland in early December, with up to 35,000 daily cases.
