WARSAW, Feb. 22 (Xinhua) -- Michal Dworczyk, chief of the Chancellery Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has tested positive for COVID-19, the Polish government confirmed on Monday.

"Due to a positive test result for COVID-19, I'll be working remotely," Dworczyk wrote on Twitter. "We need to keep to the sanitary rules and get vaccinated."

Government spokesman Piotr Muller told the national news agency PAP that Morawiecki is not required to go into self-isolation, "thanks to the implementation of safety measures within the Chancellery."

Poland confirmed 3,890 new coronavirus cases, bringing the total since the start of the pandemic last March to 1,642,658 in the country. More than 42,000 Poles have lost their lives to COVID-19. Over 2.7 million citizens have so far received at least one vaccine dose since vaccination started at the end of December.

As the world is struggling to contain the pandemic, vaccination is underway in some countries with the already-authorized coronavirus vaccines.

Meanwhile, 251 candidate vaccines are still being developed worldwide -- 70 of them in clinical trials -- in countries including Germany, China, Russia, Britain and the United States, according to information released by the World Health Organization on Feb. 19. Enditem
