As of 4 June, the number of samples tested for coronavirus infection in Poland amounted to nearly one million, according to official data presented by the Ministry of Health.
Coronavirus – current epidemic situation
At the same time, the number of people tested is 903,000. The difference between the number of samples and the number of people is due to the fact that some people are tested for coronavirus more than once. The data include molecular tests performed by laboratories listed by the Ministry of Health.
On 4 June in the afternoon, the number of diagnosed infected people in Poland was 25,048. Of which 1,117 people died. Currently, the growth of new infections is the most dynamic in the Lodzkie. For example, out of 222 new cases announced on 4 June in the afternoon, as many as 112 came from this region. This is due, on the one hand, to a large coronavirus outbreak in the frozen food plant in Dzialoszyna, and on the other hand, to the disease in the hospital in Tomaszow Mazowiecki.
New facilities to testing samples
Currently in Poland, the list of laboratories authorised by the Ministry of Health to perform tests for SARS CoV-2 includes 142 laboratories, 38 of which are private. It is worth noting that recently the Corten Medic Centre has opened mobile coronavirus testing points, located in Garwolin, Mlawa, Ostroleka and Plock. Cassette tests for coronavirus antibodies and RT genetic tests are carried out there. The points operate daily for two hours. The points carry out research financed by the National Health Fund and commercially. In May 2020, Corten Medic also opened a mobile coronavirus testing point in the Kielce Technology Park, which is stationed full-time and offers only commercial tests.
It is worth recalling that further restrictions are being lifted after the coronavirus pandemic. From 6 June, cinemas, theatres, philharmonics, fitness clubs, solariums, tattoo parlours and swimming pools will open. The possibility of organising weddings and parties has also been restored, but it will be limited to 150 people. The government is also lifting the ban on open-air concerts. They will also be possible in a limited number of participants.
