March 11, 2024, marks the somber anniversary of four years since the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak of COVID-19, caused by the novel coronavirus SARS-CoV-2, as a pandemic. 

Originating in Wuhan, China, in December 2019, the virus rapidly spread globally, leading to millions of infections and fatalities.

From January 2020, when the WHO declared it a Public Health Emergency of International Concern (PHEIC), to March 2020, when it was officially categorized as a pandemic, countries worldwide grappled with rising cases and deaths. 

Measures such as national lockdowns, emergency declarations, and vaccination campaigns became commonplace responses.

Despite progress, the emergence of variants like Delta and Omicron posed new challenges. However, the approval of vaccines and treatments provided hope for containment and recovery. 

Speaking to MaltaDaily, Superintendent for Public Health Charmaine Gauci revealed that Malta registered a total of 121,410 COVID-19 cases in four years from the day the first case was registered. 

Over 2 million – 2,168,789 – tests were carried out and over 1.5 million – 1,408,781 vaccines were administered.
