Many commemorate 58 months since Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination

Many commemorate 58 months since Daphne Caruana Galizia’s assassination

Many took to social media to commemorate 58 months since the assassination of journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia. 

Among them was former Opposition Leader Simon Busuttil who stated that Galizia “was a hopeless romantic with a passion for beauty: that’s why she fought the ugliness of excessive construction, corruption and injustice”.

Busuttil wasn’t the only one who wrote in honour of the late journalist, whose murder and the ongoing investigations and trials surrounding it made international headlines. 

Repubblika activist Robert Aquilina also took to social media, saying that he and those who have joined him in the past ‘know that we are fighting for a just cause.’ 

“Because we know this, we are determined to keep this fight going until the end.”

Addressing a public activity in memory of the assassination, Kristina Chetcuti said that the only way Malta will emerge out of the ‘destructive circle which it has entered in the last 10 years’ is if the island’s youth leave the country and return with fresh and new ideas. 

She urged them not to protest alongside them but to instead pack their bags and leave the island. There, she urged them to work, experience, talk and live full lives so that they can bring a refreshment to the Maltese islands.

Monkeypox vaccines officially arrive in Malta: primary contacts offered free jab

Health Minister Chris Fearne has revealed that the first batch of monkeypox vaccines have arrived in Malta and are set to be offered for free for primary contacts of confirmed cases. 

This was revealed in a tweet on Tuesday, wherein Fearne said that the vaccines were obtained as part of the EU Joint Procurement Mechanism. 

The first monkeypox case in Malta was registered on the 28th of May 2022, with the total number of cases currently standing at 30. This statistic comes from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.

A public health emergency over the monkeypox outbreak was announced last month by the World Health Organisation (WHO). Symptoms include fever, chills, headache, swollen glands, muscle aches, back pain, low energy and a rash that breaks out within one to three days.

46,000 people cross Malta-Gozo channel to celebrate Santa Marija

46,000 people cross Malta-Gozo channel to celebrate Santa Marija

Speaking to TVM News, Gozo Channel Chairman Joe Cordina revealed that 46,000 passengers crossed the Malta to Gozo channel between Thursday and Monday for Santa Marija celebrations. 

This is an increase of approximately 11,000 passengers from last year, which is a satisfactory number for the industry. 

However, the numbers have yet to reach the record number of 2019, which saw 50,000 people going to Gozo to celebrate the beloved Maltese feast. The day when Santa Marija is celebrated has a big effect on whether people cross the channel, stated Cordina. 

Chief Executive Officer of the Gozo Tourism Association Joe Muscat revealed that fewer Maltese visited Gozo over the Santa Marija weekend, but an increase in foreign tourists was recording this time around. 

Tourist accommodation in Gozo has been positive, he said, as the island is currently in the peak summer holiday season. Due to the pandemic, Gozo broke all records in people visiting as they could not go abroad. 

However, as the restrictions eased, people opted to travel abroad. But this also meant that foreign tourists took to the island in larger numbers, in a reversal of the previous pandemic years.
