“40% of the Covid-19 cases are the UK variant” – Deputy PM

During TVAM, the Deputy PM Chris Fearne said that 40% of the cases of Covid-19 in Malta were from the UK variant.

He said that this variant spreads more quickly and therefore we need to be more careful. With these new measures, the Deputy PM said that we have already started seeing the first effects within one week, and the cases of Covid-19 are expected to decrease.

He also said that today we will reach 100,000 vaccination doses given in Malta.
