The total amount of COVID-19 cases in Malta is expected to drop below 1,000 cases in today’s daily case report published by the Health Ministry.

This would be the first time that Malta has had a three-digit total case number since October 14th 2020 and may have been a result of the recently-imposed partial lockdown.

The health authorities will reportedly impose new changes to the health measures on April 11th and will hopefully pave the way towards the economy and health system’s bounce back during the summer.

As COVID-19 continues to run rampant globally, world leaders have called for international pandemic treaty. UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has joined more than 20 world leaders in calling for a new global settlement to help the world prepare for future pandemics. President Macron of France and German chancellor Angela Merkel also stated COVID-19 posed the biggest challenge since World War II, and another pandemic is not a matter of if but of when.

The aim of coming together in this way is to foster communication and aid between countries, to dispel ‘temptations of isolationism and nationalism’, and address challenges that could only be achieved together in the ‘spirit of solidarity and cooperation.’

Once again, Malta’s finest artist continue to highlight how the local music scene is a force to be reckoned with, and this week’s features highlight the island’s prowess in various sub-genres of electronic dance music and hip-hop.

HEARTBREAK blends story and sound in a dark, intriguing and soulful track we cannot help but keeping on repeat.

A DJ & Producer who has been making waves in the past months, Ryan Paul’s latest banger of a release solidifies his rise in the local electronic scene.

With previous support from international DJs like Laidback Luke and Sam Feldt, his latest track is an ode to the weekend drink we so dearly miss and it BANGS.

As if one 215 Collective production was not enough, Caro has also released his new track Murder Me – and it is everything we love about Caro and more. Caro is a rap Hip Hop artist of calibre whose thought provoking lyrics are perfectly married to Caro’s melodic genius.

LEX is back once again with a wavy electronic dance tune reminiscent of the local clubbing scene which he couldn’t wait to release.

Despite the ‘romantic lyric base’ which the artist highlights, the songs brings the energy we all need right now and we’ve got it on repeat.
