WARSAW (Reuters) - Poland’s government decided on Tuesday to limit the number of people allowed to take part in religious services to five at one time, in a move aimed at containing the spread of the coronavirus epidemic, Health Minister Lukasz Szumowski said.

He also said during a news conference that all new limitations being introduced, such as rules preventing leaving home unless justified, will be in force until April 11.
