Polish Health Minister Adam Niedzielski announced the third wave of coronavirus in the country. This was reported by RMF24.

"We definitely observe the third wave. This is not what awaits us in the future. We are already facing it. The question is what scale it will be," Nedzelsky said.

In particular, according to him, the question is whether the scale of the third wave will be the same as in November or smaller.

He also explained that the development of the situation with the ongoing pandemic depended on two critical factors, and the most important was the spread of the so-called "British" mutation.

As we reported earlier, the World Health Organization (WHO) has confirmed that the South African strain of coronavirus is much more contagious than others.

"The given strain is more contagious, just like the British one. But I have to say that with the application of necessary measures, including these of social distance, the spread can be taken under control," Maria Van Kerkhove, the organization's expert, said.
