Government sources have informed Times of Malta that Prime Minister Robert Abela is expected to address a press conference today on Wednesday to announce that schools will be reopening as the measures start to be eased off. The decision was allegedly made based on public health advice and that it was safe to return back to school.

Sources also allege that a gradual plan to return to school with different ages returning on different days was brought up but denied. The Prime Minister is also set to announce that surgery will restart at Mater Dei, with other measures being eased off gradually throughout the month. The plan is, according to the Prime Minister, being approached with immense caution.
