On Monday, Poland confirmed four deaths and 10,445 new coronavirus infections nationwide, compared with 35 deaths and 14,667 fresh caseday earlier.

On April 8, 2021, the country reported its highest daily toll of 954 deaths related to the coronavirus.

On April 1, 2021, the Polish health ministry confirmed 35,251 new single-day cases, the most since the pandemic hit the country in early 2020.

The Polish health ministry announced on Tuesday morning that 14,398 COVID-19 patients were in hospitals nationwide, 1,421 of them on ventilators, with a further 377,696 people quarantined for possible coronavirus exposure.

Meanwhile, 3,806,139 people have now recovered from COVID-19 throughout the country, the health ministry also said.

A day earlier, Health Minister Adam Niedzielski told reporters that Poland had entered a fifth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic amid the spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus.

He warned that infections in the country could soon hit record levels.

"We predict that infections will peak in mid-February and that peak will be at about 60,000 cases a day," Niedzielski told a news conference on Monday.

Public health authorities in the middle of last month confirmed Poland's first case of the omicron COVID-19 variant. Since then 708 more omicron cases have been detected, according to Deputy Health Minister Waldemar Kraska.

A range of coronavirus restrictions took effect in the country in December as it seeks to fend off the new, highly contagious strain of the coronavirus.
