Maltese police found no one violating the mandatory quarantine rules following 149 spot-checks carried out around Malta and Gozo over the past 24 hours.
“Thank you for your cooperation to #flattenthecurve2gether,” the police said, referring to the government’s social distancing strategy, which is intended to prevent a sudden spike in coronavirus cases. “
“Over the past 24 hours the Administrative Law Enforcement Unit (ALE) & the Gozo Police together with Environmental Health Directorate officers and the Civil Protection Department performed another 149 spot-checks in Malta and 26 spot-checks in Gozo where everyone was found to be abiding with the quarantine regulations.”
This appears to show that the new €3,000 fine for quarantine violators is having the intended effect of convincing people to stay inside.
The fine was originally set at €1,000 but Prime Minister Robert Abela yesterday announced it would be tripled after police found five people disobeying the rules.
