The number of Poland’s confirmed coronavirus infections has grown since Saturday by 5,334 new cases and reached 1,588,955, the Ministry of Health said on Sunday.

Another 98 people have died, bringing the death toll to 40,807.

The health ministry also reported that 11,962 people with confirmed coronavirus infection have been hospitalised and 137,229 are under quarantine. So far, 1,342,031 people have recovered.

In all, 2,107,089 Poles have already been vaccinated against Covid-19, according to data posted on the official government website,

The government started a national vaccination programme on December 27, with health-service workers amongst the first to be protected against the virus. In late January, Poland started vaccinating senior citizens over 80 years of age.

Since the virus first hit the country in March, Poland has introduced a number of measures to counter its spread. In December, the government announced that Poland would enter a ‘national quarantine’ from December 28 to January 17. In mid-January, the government decided to keep all coronavirus-related restrictions in force until January 31. Most since then have been extended to February 14. Restaurants are only allowed takeaway or home delivery sales. Shopping malls and some cultural institutions have been allowed to open again from February 1. Hotels, theatres, cinemas and swimming pools opened with limited capacity on February 12.
