Malta has officially administered over 400,000 vaccines to its public, making herd immunity a very close goal indeed. 400,118 vaccines were administered in total today, of which 272,025 were first doses. Malta currently has 130,537 people vaccinated, with the vaccine rollout extending to over-16s next week. The active and daily cases have also dropped significantly, proving that the vaccine rollout met its intended goal.
With only 4 cases reported today and the number of active cases dropping beneath 200, health authorities have started to ease measures as the return to normalcy becomes more tangible. The vaccination rollout has also eased the tension on health care systems in Malta, but COVID-19 is still a very real threat. Authorities therefore remind the public to keep adhering to the health restrictions remaining so as to keep numbers low.
