In light of the recent spike in COVID-19 cases in China, Malta has reintroduced a number of measures at the Malta International Airport for Chinese arrivals.
A new legal notice published by the Superintended for Public Health states that from Monday onwards, all travellers arriving from China must present a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen test.
A recent estimate revealed that around 250 million people were infected with COVID-19 in China during the first 20 days of December, with the city of Qingdao reportedly seeing around half a million cases a day.
The is the first time that new COVID-19 measures have been introduced since July 2022.
