In a press conference addressed by Health Minister Chris Fearne, it was revealed that the COVID-19 situation in Malta remains under control and there are zero cases of Monkeypox in the country.
Even if there had to be a Monkeypox case in Malta, Fearne stated that it should not be a cause for alarm.
Addressing the COVID-19 situation, Fearne highlighted that the situation is under control and immunity appears to be very good, with Malta’s health authorities reporting 90 new cases of COVID-19 with 1,556 active cases. Meanwhile, 30,000 people over 65 have received their second booster dose, with the health minister urging for all to accept their vaccination invitation.
With regards to Monkeypox, Fearne shut down any rumours that there may be cases of Monkeypox in Malta, shunning the action of ‘one or two’ people who may have caused public alarm.
Fearne highlighted that ‘Monkeypox is not Covid’ and even so, health authorities are prepared for whatever may happen in the future.
