Professor Gauci said the Malta’s Health Authorities had intensified their testing efforts, having increased the testing frequency. Apart from that, from today, two new swabbing centres are fully operational – one in Gozo and one in Pembroke.
It is of extreme importance that whoever feels symptoms does not go to these centres on his or her own steam. Instead they are to call 111 where they will be guided accordingly.
