Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne made it clear that it is still not the time for authorities to start relaxing some measures from the existing restrictions to reduce the Covid-19 spread.
Dr Fearne was speaking after announcing that no new Covid-19 cases were registered in Malta today.
He added that currently there are 162 active cases in Malta, however he knows that there are other persons in the community who were infected and did not undergo the test, and others who will become positive to the virus.
He maintained that in past and in this current pandemic, authorities found that when social distancing measures were removed, there was an increase of cases among the population.
Dr Fearne stressed that measures have to be gradually and wisely removed and those still in place have to be fully observed.
For the first time, no new Covid-19 case registered in Malta
