Poland may demand a negative coronavirus test result to enter the country without quarantine, the Polish health minister said on Monday.

According to Adam Niedzielski, Poland may introduce this by the end of this week. "It will probably apply to the southern and western borders of Poland," he told private broadcaster TVN 24.

He stressed that any person with a negative coronavirus test result will not have to quarantine after entering the country. The minister added that people without the test will be able to come to Poland but will have to quarantine. 

Niedzielski also said that he expected the peak of the third wave of the pandemic to come in late March or early April. 

“We forecast it at a level of around 10,000 - 12,000 cases per day, which is a number that we have already dealt with,” Niedzielski added. (PAP)
