MAM’s reaction to yesterday’s announced measures

The Medical Association, MAM, stated that the announced measures are good against the coronavirus pandemic, however with false enforcement Covid numbers will not be decreased.

MAM said in a statement this morning that the Maltese have still to experience the worst of this pandemic as it predicts an increase in the number of persons who will be admitted at the intensive care unit and even deaths.

The Medical Association added that the government’s attitude of business as usual and the false illusion of normality, promoted by the Prime Minister, led to subsequent cases records.

The association said that this is the last chance for the Maltese as they only can provide hope to the situation. While welcoming yesterday evening’s measures, it said that if these fail there is no other choice except for lockdowns as occurred in Spain, France and the United Kingdom, among other measures.
