Polish health officials reported 1,136 new cases of coronavirus this Thursday, an unprecedented number since the pandemic began, and the government attributes this to the continued increase in people-to-people contacts, not major sources of contagion.
With this new update, 82,809 people in Poland have already tested positive. Of these, 2,369 victims of COVID-19 lost their lives, 25 more than on Monday, according to the PAP news agency.
Poland had already reached an unprecedented number of cases last Saturday, with 1,002 in 24 hours. However, the executive does not believe the pandemic is out of control and “logically” sees that as meetings increase, cases can increase. In this sense, he defended that the health system still has room for maneuver.
