Malta has registered just one positive case of COVID-19 in the last 24 hours while more patients are recovering from the virus. This was confirmed by the Superintendent of Public Health, Professor Charmaine Gauci in her daily media brief.

Referring to the low number of positive cases reported during these last days, Maltese Prime Minister Robert Abela said that the government is cautious but optmistic about the lifting of some of the precautionary measures. But Professor Gauci declared that it is still not the right time for certain measures to be lifted. She added that once the authorities announce such decisions, these will be followed under strict supervision.

19 more people have recovered from coronavirus but they will remain in quarantine; 14 male and 5 women. Only one new person has been confirmed as a new positive COVD-19 case. The new case is a Serbian woman aged 29 who resides and works in Malta.

A total number of 118 persons have recovered so far from the virus. This leaves 306 active cases. Prof. Gauci appealed to the Maltese to follow the authorities’ instructions to continue maintaining the positive cases as low as possible.

Meanwhile, no new positive cases were reported from the Ħal Far Open Centre. The total number of  migrants residing in this open centre who have tested positive for coronavirus stands at 35.
