On Thursday, the Polish Health Ministry reported 954 new deaths from the coronavirus disease — the most since the beginning of the pandemic.
This is reported by RMF24.
At the same time, the agency noted that such high data on mortality may be the result of late data transmission in connection with the Easter holidays.
Over the past 24 hours, 27,887 new cases of coronavirus have also been detected in Poland.
The total number of people infected with coronavirus in Poland is already 2,499,507. 56,659 patients died.
Hospitals have 34,864 patients with COVID-19, 173 more than on Wednesday. 3362 will require a ventilator, 20 more than the day before.
As reported, Poland continued the current quarantine restrictions to combat the coronavirus epidemic for another 9 days-until April 18, while at first they were planned until April 9.
Recall that since March 20, Poland has returned to the national lockdown — since then, hotels, shopping centers (except for grocery stores, pharmacies, press kiosks), cinemas, theaters, museums, ski slopes, swimming pools, gyms, saunas, restaurants, bars, tennis courts, and casinos have stopped working.
Since March 27, kindergartens and hairdressers, large furniture and building materials stores have been closed. In those stores that are allowed to work, there are restrictions on the number of visitors.
Companies are encouraged to move their employees to remote work whenever possible.
