Poland’s COVID-19 caseload has reached 999,924 with 17,599 deaths, the Polish health ministry said Tuesday.
Over the last 24 hours, 9,105 new cases and 449 more deaths were reported, according to the ministry. Meanwhile, more than 597,000 people have recovered, said the ministry.
The Polish government in late November announced new restrictions for Christmas Eve and a new economic stimulus package for businesses that have suffered during the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Germany has reported 17,270 new cases of COVID-19 over the past 24 hours, bringing the nation’s total to 1,084,743, the federal Robert Koch Institute (RKI) said on Wednesday.
The country’s death toll has increased by 487 to 17,123, the RKI’s COVID-19 dashboard showed.
To cope with rising COVID-19 infection rates, the country’s federal and state governments last week decided to extend a partial lockdown until Dec. 20.
