The Polish government will consider imposing new restrictions to stem the spread of COVID-19 after it reported the country's highest number of new infections for the second day in a row on Friday, reported Xinhua.

According to the country's health ministry, 657 new cases and seven deaths were recorded on Friday, taking the total number of cases to 45,688 and the death toll to 1,716.

Government spokesman Piotr Muller tweeted that the government would discuss what action it would take, including whether to introduce new quarantine measures, though the country recently lifted most lockdown restrictions.
