The Polish government has announced a list of 44 countries, including Malta, where all flights to and from are banned for two weeks.
This ban will come into effect on September 2, and will be in place until September 15, yet this is subject to revisions.
Apart from Malta, the list also includes the United States, Spain, Romania and Brazil, and plenty of other badly-hit countries.
Poland is currently dealing with a second wave of COVID-19, with the daily new cases since the end of July being much higher than those during the start of the pandemic between March and June.
In August, Poland recorded extremely high numbers of new cases, with August 21 and August 22 having 903 and 900 new cases respectively.
During the March-June period, the highest number of new cases was 599 on June 8.
Whilst the country’s number of cases has been on a downward trend since the record number of new cases, the government has still acted to try and curb the spread, by prohibiting travel across these 44 countries.
Poland currently has 18,834 active cases, with 67,922 total cases and 2,058 deaths.
On the other hand, Malta is currently seeing a downturn in cases after a second wave took cases from as little as three to 699 in the space of just over a month.
There are still some positive signs, with active cases going down from 699 to 444 in less than two weeks.
The Polish government had already advised against all unnecessary travel to Malta, making this announcement on August 21, after Malta had undergone a resurgence in cases at the time.
