Four new coronavirus cases confirmed in Poland

Four new coronavirus cases have been diagnosed in Poland, Health Minister Łukasz Szumowski announced during the press conference on Friday.

The first confirmed case of coronavirus in Poland was diagnosed in the city of Zielona Góra in the western province of Lubuskie on Wednesday. The infected individual was travelling back from Germany by bus.

Among the newly diagnosed cases, two patients have returned from Italy and are hospitalised in Szczecin. One had travelled with “patient zero” and is recovering in Ostróda, while the last one, most likely, became infected in the UK and is undergoing treatment at a hospital in Wrocław.

According to Minister Szumowski, the lives of the infected are not in danger. At the moment, over 6,000 people are being kept under surveillance, while a few hundred have been quarantined.
