In total, 2,967 COVID-19 patients have recovered and 41 have died since the start of the pandemic last March.

Malta has seen a spike in COVID-19 cases in recent days but the country’s virus mortality rate has also gone down – from 3.6 deaths per 100,000 people at the end of September to 2.4 deaths per 100,000 people today.

New Opposition leader Bernard Grech has called on Malta to declare a new state of public health emergency, but Prime Minister Robert Abela has played down this call, arguing he doesn’t want to scare people and impose a lockdown.
