On April 8, the country reported its highest daily toll of 954 deaths related to the coronavirus.

On April 1, the Polish health ministry confirmed 35,251 new single-day cases, the most since the pandemic hit the country early last year.

1,020 in hospitals, 81,151 quarantined

The Polish health ministry announced on Sunday morning that 1,020 COVID-19 patients were in hospitals nationwide, 111 of them on ventilators, with a further 81,151 people quarantined for possible coronavirus exposure.

Meanwhile, 2,659,483 people have now recovered from COVID-19 throughout the country, the health ministry also said.

Officials have warned that the number of COVID-19 infections in the country could rise in the weeks ahead as the Delta variant of the coronavirus begins to spread more quickly.

Health Minister Adam Niedzielski said earlier this month that the daily number of new coronavirus infections in the country could reach 1,000 by the end of September and then rise to 5,000 by late October.
