The change will reduce customers’ chances of getting the virus on their hands because they will not have to physically enter a PIN number at a payment terminal.

Krzysztof Pietraszkiewicz, head of the Polish Bank Association (ZBP), said that after the switch, 83 percent of payment transactions will be carried out via contactless technology.

"In some banks and payment systems, the raising of the payment limit is already happening and will be launched within a few days,” said Pietraszkiewicz.

“In others it will take several weeks or months, but probably no longer than two months," he added.

Officials said on Thursday evening that the coronavirus epidemic had killed two more people in Poland, bringing the country’s total death toll from the COVID-19 disease to 16.

The number of people who had tested positive for the disease in Poland climbed to 1,221.
