The Medical Association of Malta has spoken out against the attitude of the Prime Minister and Tourism Minister who, despite the recent increase in deaths and cases, went ahead with the announcement of ‘Christmas in the City’ mass event. 

The MAM highlighted Malta’s recent increase in cases and deaths, where the death toll currently stands at 81 with three medical wards in Mater Dei catering exclusively to COVID-19 patients.

While polls and surveys have shown that most Maltese citizens are against lockdown, one cannot ignore the lack of progress being made with regards to COVID-19 as events such as this may contribute to a further surge in cases.
