Finally, after nearly one whole year, Malta’s active COVID-19 cases have dropped to double digits again. This happened after the island registered six new cases and 10 recoveries in the last 24 hours.
The last time Malta’s total active cases stood at under 100 was 296 days ago, all the way back on 29th July 2020, when Malta had 46 active cases.
One day later, that number had shot up to 140 following a village feast cluster and a cohort of disembarked migrants.
To understand just how long ago that was, this was when the islands had a grand all-time total of 720 cases (that now stands at 30,491) and nine deaths (that now stands at 417).
Speaking of which, today sees another day of very promising COVID-19 statistics in what has become a hopeful trend of no virus-related deaths, low new infections and high vaccination numbers.
After this week’s record-breaking inoculation statistics, another day of high vaccination numbers has ended with 164, 113 people being fully vaccinated in Malta.
Meanwhile, in a perfectly timed twist, summer officially kicks off in 30 days.
Do you think Malta can hit zero active cases before summer officially starts?
