There are no more patients recovering from Covid-19 in Malta’s hospitals. This was announced this morning by the Deputy PM and Health Minister Chris Fearne during the inauguration of a health centre at Marsaxlokk.

Minister Fearne added that last night an 82-year-old man who had tested positive for Covid died, after he was infected with the virus for the second time. The last time someone died with Covid was on 26 March, just over three weeks ago.

At the same time, Dr Fearne said that today there were no new cases, and the number of active cases have gone down to 33.

He said that 79% of Maltese adults have taken their first dose, with the country aiming to reach 80%. Minister Fearne said the majority of countries are aiming at 70%.

While describing the situation of Covid in Malta as a good one, Dr Fearne still appealed for caution until all the restrictions are lifted.
