Fully vaccinated people could get 5 day quarantines instead of 14

Fully vaccinated people could get 5 day quarantines instead of 14
Jul 24 2021 Share

In an interview with Health Minister Chris Fearne by Times of Malta, it was revealed that fully vaccinated people who come into contact with COVID-19 positive individuals could be subject to a less than 14-day quarantine. The plan, which is still being worked out by health authorities, could see fully vaccinated people exiting self-isolation after just five days and a negative PCR test result. This was first implemented during a pilot study with Mater Dei Hospital frontlines, but the structure could soon be brought into the public for use. 

This follows after the Malta Chamber motioned to ease quarantine rules for fully vaccinated individuals, with chamber president Marisa Xuereb stating that if the vaccines truly break chain of contagion, measures should be eased and made more pragmatic. The Deputy Prime Minister stated that the rules could be eased if the number of COVID-19 patients receiving hospital treatment remains low, and that the public should be informed by the end of the month if this is to be implemented.

Local influencer Daniel Umanah is set to return to his father’s village in Nigeria and continue the charity work he started in 2019. Laying the foundations of the community-work, he and his colleagues contributed to the village of IKOT IMO in the ABAK L.G. Area. His father left his footmark in the village by funding the building of St. Patrick’s Catholic Church, and Daniel seeks to continue the legacy. He revealed how, as a Maltese nurse, he felt a need to take a small fraction of the Maltese generosity and health care standards to the village.

Raising €4,000 two years ago, the pandemic unfortunately did not allow them to raise any more money. With his next visit due however, he revealed how he has acquired all the necessary permits thanks to the Malta Police Force and Bank of Valletta. He asks people to donate any money they are willing to give in order to continue his charity work in Nigeria. Well done for the initiative Daniel!

Celine Agius quickly became a fan favourite as she competed in X-Factor Malta’s second season. With a stunning voice and amazing personality to match, the star has since been working super hard to improve her own health after it started to affect her personal life. In an emotional post, Celine revealed how she managed to lose 45 kilograms as she reflected on how things like a 5 minute walk or standing up on her own two feet were painful and tiring. 

She stated that there is no secret to the journey but believing in the strength one has within. She revealed how the doctor told her she has to implement change immediately or suffer severe health conditions for life. She revealed how she was addicted to food and that going up stairs was almost impossible due to her suffering from lymphedema. She ended her powerful message by stating that if she could overcome such arduous challenges, it should inspire others to undertake the journey themselves. Well done Celine!

WATCH: Acts of Kindness: FREE TAXI ‘RYDES’ to random people

ACTS OF KINDNESS: Free Taxi Rides
Jul 23 2021 Share

Summer in Malta means beach days, sunny weather and timeless memories. However, it can also mean scorching temperatures, busy streets and potentially even increased traffic – which is why getting from point A to point B may be more stressful than one would anticipate.

That is why for today’s act of kindness, Malta Daily has teamed up with local mobility service Ryde Malta to provide free taxi rides to people on various bus stops around Malta.

This initiative is part of Malta Daily’s Acts of Kindness, a series of kind gestures around Malta which not only attempt to brighten random people’s day but also encourage these individuals to pay it forward and spread the kindness themselves.

The significant amount of spontaneous brawls and heated online arguments may have been a by-product of such stress, which is why we are encouraging the people out there to exercise some of their good will and energy to conduct a random act of kindness, no matter how little it may be.
