Jan 25 2021 Share

“So far, Malta is the EU champion..” News organisation Politico’s statement of Malta’s vaccination process shook the nation on Monday morning with Health Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne sharply addressing the statement on social media.

Malta currently leads the charge on EU vaccination targets and it may meet the European Commission’s target on time if daily doses are doubled, where the Commission wants 70% of EU adults to be inoculated by summer.

Meanwhile, Dr. Fearne expressed his anticipation of the European Medicines Authority’s approval and arrival of the AstraZeneca vaccine, following the pharmaceutical company’s announcement of cutting back EU deliveries.

Malta ‘one of the least strict countries’ in EU for COVID-19 measures

Jan 25 2021 Share

In an index published by the University of Oxford, it was reported that Malta is one of the least strict countries in the European Union when it comes to COVID-19 mitigation measures.

The index highlights international governmental efforts with regards to controlling the pandemics and considers measures such as curfews, lockdowns and others with Malta scoring a 52.78 based on information gathered up until January 11.

For comparison, Italy registered an 80.56 score, Germany and Ireland 85.19 and Finland 52.31 with the researchers noting that a high score does not mean that a country has been more effective in the imposition of its measures.
