COVID-19 has impacted the whole world in some way or other and the tiny island of Comino is no exception.
And for 72-year-old Salvu Vella, one of Comino’s only residents, things have actually changed for the better.
“Comino has returned to how I remember it when I was ten years old,” he told TVM. “People used to come here everyday but now we’re truly by ourselves again. From my end, Comino is lovely now; it’s as though it’s having a breather from all the noise and people.”
Despite the lack of visitors, Salvu said he is concerned that the COVID-19 coronavirus could end up impacting Comino too, and this because his brother Anġlu needs to travel to the mainland for dialysis treatment every two days.
“Hopefully, I won’t contract the virus so I will be able to keep taking care [of Comino],” he said.
