MAM extends its directives up to 14 August and gives Government a one week ultimatum

The Malta Medical Association in a statement this morning said that the current directives will be extended and remain in effect until Friday 14 August.

During a meeting of the MAM council yesterday, it was decided that its directives will be suspended for a week between 15 – 23 August. It added that if the Cabinet does not take further measures by that date to bring the pandemic effectively under control, the MAM will once again re-instate all of the directives, including the suspension of non-urgent operations from Monday 24 August.

In a statement, the MAM said that its directives were followed by 95% of its members. It added that a doctor at a health centre tested positive for COVID-19 and another doctor is in quarantine awaiting the results of his test.

It said that the situation has deteriorated so significantly, with a dramatic increase in the number of cases, that according to the MAM,, today we will have record number of cases. It added that yesterday, four patients were recovering at Mater Dei bringing the total number of patients at the hospital to seven.
