If the coronavirus epidemic situation will be difficult in the fall, some restrictions may return, but certainly not in the same form as they were introduced so far, Health Minister Lukasz Szumowski told Polish Radio Three on Friday.

The minister noted that the Polish government would not introduce restrictions in their full form, as before, because the Polish economy could not withstand another lockdown.

According to the Polish Health Ministry, the number of confirmed coronavirus infections in Poland has, so far, reached 33,119, and the death toll stands at 1,412.
