    Poland's Lake District Sees Sudden Spike in COVID Cases

    OLSZTYN, Poland (Reuters) - COVID ward doctor Lukasz Grabarczyk fears his city of Olsztyn in Poland's north-eastern lake district is starting to experience its worst period of the pandemic, as it becomes the epicentre of the country's third wave.

    Epidemiologists and doctors are trying to find out why the sparsely-populated region, which up until now had low infection rates, has seen such a sharp spike, especially of the variant first detected in Britain, and believe Poles returning from there may be behind it.

    On Wednesday, the region of 1.4 million saw 1,132 new daily coronavirus cases. Its infection rates per 100,000 people are consistently more than double the national average, according to recent data.

    "There's an avalanche of new patients and we are running out of beds," said Grabarczyk.

    The number of new infections with Covid-19 increased to 15,698, as Poland wrestles with a third wave of epidemic, Deputy Health Minister Waldemar Kraska has said.

    "New cases, unfortunately, are increasing from day to day, and this is a very disturbing signal," Kraska told public broadcaster Polish Radio One.

    A week ago on Wednesday there were 12,146 new cases. Kraska added that according to Wednesday data, 309 people had died due to coronavirus infection or complications from the disease.
