UPDATED: “We haven’t killed anyone!” – Hamrun bingo players rattled when their activity is cut short

This afternoon, the authorities stopped a bingo activity that was taking place in Ħamrun.

The enforcement section of Transport Malta, working in conjunction with the health authorities and the Police, went to a bingo hall in Triq il-Kbira San Ġużepp shortly after 3.00pm, where it is understood that dozens of people had gathered to play bingo.

TVM informed that there were about 60 people present, mostly senior citizens. Their disappointment was palpable, and some of them complained and were heard saying “It’s not like we have killed anyone!” While others were heard lamenting, “We haven’t got much longer, let us live!”

On the outside door of the hall notices had been posted advertising the bingo session which started at 2pm. This is considered as a mass activity which according to the Covid-19 measures is not allowed. TVM is informed that the organisers were fined.

Meanwhile, today the Police continued patrolling many areas around Malta, including Buskett, Marsaxlokk, Ta ‘Qali, L-Aħrax and Cirkewwa.
