Polish schools to go partly remote as COVID-19 surges: education minister

Older elementary school children and high school students in Poland will switch to remote learning as the omicron coronavirus variant spreads in the country, Education Minister Przemysław Czarnek said on Tuesday.

Classes will be conducted remotely from Thursday until the end of the school winter break in late February, he announced.

"In practice, this means two weeks of distance learning," Czarnek told reporters, blaming a resurgence in coronavirus cases.

Poland on Tuesday reported 36,995 new coronavirus infections and 252 more deaths related to COVID-19, bringing the country's total number of cases during the pandemic to 4,584,360 and fatalities to 104,097.

Three days earlier, the country reported a record daily rise in coronavirus infections, confirming 40,876 new cases, the most since the pandemic hit the country almost two years ago.

The government this week made remote working mandatory for public-sector employees until the end of February as the country enters a fifth wave of the COVID-19 pandemic amid the spread of the omicron variant of the coronavirus.

Health Minister Adam Niedzielski warned on Friday that coronavirus infections in the country would hit new records during the next few weeks, surpassing 60,000 daily cases and possibly approaching 140,000.
