Malta introduces new COVID-19 measures for arrivals from China

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.

Women sleep better near dogs than people, new study claims

Women sleep better near dogs than people, new study claims

A new study has revealed that ‘man’s best friend’ actually contributes better to women’s sleeping patterns, with research suggesting females enjoy a better night’s sleep next to dogs rather than people.

In December, researchers at Buffalo’s Canisius College published a study analysing the sleeping patterns of adult women when sharing a bed with their pets. Data collected from close to 1,000 United States women found that the majority (55%) shared a bed with at least one dog, thirty one percent slept with at least one cat and 57% slept next to a human partner.

The research found that women sleeping next to their dogs slept better than the ones sleeping next to humans as dogs do not disrupt sleeping patterns as often whilst also providing an increased sense of security & comfort.

Meanwhile, cats were as disruptive as humans, whilst also offering a lesser sense of comfort & security than dogs & humans.
