WARSAW (Reuters) - Polish Deputy Prime Minister Jadwiga Emilewicz said on Monday that she saw no need to introduce new restrictions or re-instate previous ones despite a sudden hike in new infections over the weekend.

“There are no plans to do so today,” Emilewicz told private broadcaster Polsat News.

On Sunday Poland recorded 575 new coronavirus infections, with a similar number reported on Saturday. Sunday’s daily increase brings the total number of people infected in the country to 26,561, with 1,157 deaths.
