Malta hits the 1000 active COVID-19 cases mark

Malta has once again hit the 1000 active COVID-19 case mark, registering 1007 active cases following 83 new cases being found in the past 24 hours. This despite the almost fully immunised population, with the booster programme well on its way. 

Health authorities revealed that due to the vaccine rollout being a success, the focus could be shifted onto hospitalisations and deaths instead of the total number of cases. This means that restrictions will be eased or increased depending on how many people are hospitalised or lose their life to COVID. 2 men died of the virus in the past 24 hours.  

The last time there were more than 1,000 cases was the 7th of August at 1,058 cases. 13 patients are currently being treated at Mater Dei, with 2 in the ITU. Till yesterday, 939,732 doses of the vaccine were administer, with 104,989 of these being booster doses.
