The Polish foreign ministry on Friday advised Poles to avoid unnecessary travel abroad due to the growing coronavirus outbreak but stopped short of issuing a ban as other countries in the region have done.
"As at the current stage of development of the coronavirus epidemic no place in the world is risk-free, and in some regions of the world the situation is changing in an unusually dynamic way," the statement ministry said in a statement.
"The foreign ministry calls for avoiding any foreign trips that aren't necessary." Poland -- central Europe's biggest country -- has confirmed 68 cases of coronavirus so far with one death.
