Inconsistent health measures leaving graduates frustrated

An anonymous student contacted this newsroom to express their frustration at how the COVID-19 pandemic health measures are being handled.They shared screenshots of two separate events – a graduation ceremony and Sigma art auction. 

We must clarify before going any further that this is not an attack on Sigma or any other event hosting large numbers of people in any way shape or form. This is a criticism of the measures and how they are being applied according to different events.

With Sigma being a major front-runner in the global tech and gaming industry and  initiative MaltaDaily representatives will continue to support, the event still allowed for massive groups of people to be gathered in the same area. 

Meanwhile, during the graduation event, students had to adhere to social distancing rules, with their parents being forced to watch the ceremony through a ‘bad quality’ stream in a tent. 

The juxtaposition of this suggests an inconsistency in how public health measures are being carried out. This despite the fact that Malta’s population is mostly vaccinated as well as having very low hospitalisations. 

Students have been waiting an entire pandemic to celebrate their hard earned achievement but are still unable to fully celebrate it due to restrictions. What do you make of this?
