Amid the coronavirus pandemic, Poland has banned scheduled passenger flights to and from 30 countries under new rules that come into force on Wednesday.

The change means air connections between Poland and France will be forbidden for the first time.

But flights to Romania, Albania, Malta and Kosovo will now be allowed.

The number of banned destinations has been cut from a previous 44.

The new rules will be valid until September 29 and do not apply to some charter flights.

With 56 COVID-19 deaths per million population, Poland remains far less affected by the coronavirus epidemic than many other countries in Europe, according to figures released by the country’s health ministry earlier this month.

A total of 75,134 people have tested positive for the coronavirus in Poland since the start of the pandemic, and 2,227 have died from the COVID-19 respiratory disease so far, officials said on Tuesday.
