Poland Reached Another Daily Record with More Than 21,600 Coronavirus Cases

October 30, 2020

WARSAW, Poland — Poland reached another daily record with more than 21,600 coronavirus cases registered on Friday.

There were 202 more deaths, 35 considered caused by COVID-19 alone. The Health Ministry says more than 15,400 people were hospitalized and more than 1,250 are on ventilators.

Nearly 7,700 hospital beds for COVID-19 patients and more than 520 ventilators are still available in the nation of 38 million, the ministry says.

Authorities are concerned about a possible spike in cases following street demonstrations against the recent tightening of the abortion law. A march is expected Friday in Warsaw, the second week of protests.
