Poland reported a record 24,692 new coronavirus infections and 373 deaths on Wednesday, according to the country's health ministry.
Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki is expected to hold a press conference Wednesday amid the surge, where he is expected to announce further measures to combat the virus.
Restrictions have also been imposed across Europe. England is set to enter lockdown from midnight Thursday, Germany's softer, so-called "lockdown light" restrictions began on Monday and Austria started a nationwide lockdown on Tuesday.
Meanwhile Ukraine reported a record 9,524 new cases in the past 24 hours, the health ministry said on Wednesday.
These record case counts come just days after the World Health Organization said that Europe has once again become the epicenter of the global pandemic.
