No new restrictions but no relaxations as PM urges vaccination

Speaking in parliament yesterday, Prime Minister Robert Abela urged the public to stick to vaccine appointments as the road back to normality depends on everyone’s actions. Abela also highlighted how the Health Authorities did not advise in an increase in restrictions, but also did not wish to relax any measures either. 

The PM expressed his worry at other countries reinstating mitigation measures due to rising cases. However, ‘thanks to our vaccination numbers, we are in a good position to pave the way to normality’ he said. ‘The situation is clear as day and countries who have low vaccination rates find themselves in unpleasant situations. So far, as of time of writing, around 76,000 booster doses have been administered. 

Malta currently has 603 active cases, but only 13 are being treated at Mater Dei Hospital. 2 of those are in Intensive Care. Health Minister Chris Fearne said that the successful vaccination rollout allows us to shift focus on the number of hospitalisations instead of daily cases.
