No new cases of Coronavirus in Malta – 13 others recover

Public Health Superintendent Professor Charmaine Gauci has confirmed that there are no new cases of Coronavirus for today, adding that another 13 infected patients have recovered from the virus.

Professor Gauci announced the news at her media conference, during which she also referred to the eighth victim of Coronavirus, a 56-year-old man who suffered from a number of medical conditions. In reference to this eighth victim, Professor Gauci stated that the man was being treated, but was not in the ITU. The Superintendent explained that the man was infected with Covid-19, but this did not necessarily mean it was the cause of death.

Eight deaths have been registered in Malta so far, and 514 persons have recovered. A total of 616 persons have been infected with Covid-19 in Malta so far.

Professor Gauci gave a breakdown of the four cases which tested positive yesterday. Ten other persons were also reported to have recovered yesterday. The four cases involve two carers at Karin Grech, female Indian nationals aged 32 and 33 years respectively. One of the women had not shown any symptoms. The other two cases are a 33-year-old woman who had been in contact with another person already infected with Covid-19. The last case from yesterday is a 53-year-old woman who exhibited symptoms, including fever, headaches and muscle pain, as well as a loss of taste and smell.

There are presently 25 persons in hospitals, including 13 at Boffa Hospital, six at St Thomas Hospital and another six at Mater Dei Hospital.
