Malta’s COVID-19 r-factor drops to 0.46 as daily cases decrease

The reproduction number of the virus refers to how many people get infected by COVID-19 as transmitted by another person. Countries all over the world have been trying to get the number down to 1 or lower – meaning that one person would transmit the virus to only one other person. Malta currently stands at 0.46, statistician Vincent Marmara told The Malta Independent. 

A total of 412 new cases were registered in the past week, contrasted with a 1,021 registering in the previous week. 412 cases in a week is a significant improvement considering previous weeks seeing a similar number registered as daily cases. Deaths have also decreased, with vaccination roll out going over 200,000 just yesterday. Despite this positive change in the COVID-19 situation in Malta, the public is still urged to follow health measures in order to mitigate the spread even further.
