The ban, introduced on March 15 and in force until April 26, would be in effect for a further 14 days, Polish government spokesman Piotr Müller told public broadcaster Polish Radio on Friday.

He added that issues concerning international aviation and rail traffic will be suspended until further notice.

Poland has recorded 11,067 coronavirus cases and 499 deaths. Since the country’s first infection was confirmed on March 4, Poland has declared a "state of epidemic" and temporarily closed its borders to non-residents in a move to curb the spread of the illness.
