During an interview on ONE, Prime Minister Robert Abela declared that Malta is no longer in a public health emergency. This means that remaining COVID related restrictions shall be lifted, including the 75 people gathering limit.
This means that mass events can take place again.
“The fear raised by some sectors that the R Factor is going up is unjust,” Abela said when interviewed on ONE. “Our point of departure should be that we only have 36 active cases. We’ve controlled the spread of the virus brilliantly, everyone knows this and our mortality rate is very low.”
“If we try and scare people, we’ll be doing a disservice to our people.”
