After the Health Ministry opened a further two new swabbing centres, in the past 24 hours a record 3,030 tests were carried out in the past 24 hours. From these, 40 new cases were registered and 18 people have recovered.

Throughout the pandemic, Malta has always held a high position globally with regards to the amount of tests per capita, and it looks like the amount of tests carried out on a daily basis are set to increase.



There are now 6 Swabbing Centres in Malta and Gozo, with the latest one being in Burmarrad, and the others being in Qormi, Mater Dei Hospital, Pembroke, Luqa and in Gozo.

Since February, as testing had already started, albeit in small numbers, before the first COVID-19 Case was registered in Malta on the 7th March 2020, Malta has carried out 166,348 tests, out of which, so far, a total of 1,510 cases were registered, with 802 people who have already recovered, and 699 cases which are currently active.

All in all, we believe that all medical frontliners, deverse one, never-ending clapping session, a massive thank you, and all the love we can possibly send their way!
