The country’s first coronavirus fatality was announced on Thursday.

Poland has declared a state of "epidemic emergency" and has temporarily closed its borders to non-residents in a move to curb the spread of the illness.

The first case of coronavirus infection was confirmed by Polish authorities on March 4.

International passenger air and rail connections were suspended on Sunday, though the government is chartering special flights to help its citizens return home.
