 Fearne stated that this was far from an easy decision, appealing for the public to remain responsible and cooperative in the organisation of gatherings during the festive season. 

He went on to say that, while all deaths are tragedies, only 4% of tests in Malta result as positive, with countries like Czechia and Poland having percentages of 30% and 45% respectively.

ECDC predicts just under 200 daily cases during holiday period

 - COVID-19 - Nov 27 2020 SHARE ON:

With the holiday period coming up, the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) have released projections which predict just under 200 daily cases for Malta.

These projections take into consideration Malta’s various preventive measures such as closure of bars and clubs, mandatory mask-wearing and ban on mass events.

The data also suggests a registration of around four deaths per day during the Christmas period and also presents an alternative scenario where Malta shuts down non-essential businesses, schools and travel which may bring cases down to under 50 a day.
