WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland’s government will announce on Thursday further measures aimed at combating the spread of COVID-19, government spokesman Piotr Muller said on Wednesday, as the country reported another record in daily infections of well above 10,000.

“As far as restrictions are concerned, they will be announced tomorrow,” Muller told reporters, adding that among others the government will take a decision on whether to move the teaching of older pupils in primary schools online.
