Just over eight months since Malta’s first COVID-19 case was announced, the islands have now hit the very grim milestone of triple digit deaths.
The heartbreaking record has just been hit after Malta registered three more deaths, people aged 78, 87 and 79, who passed away earlier today.
The 87-year-old and 79-year-old men passed away at Mater Dei, while the 78-year-old man died at the Good Samaritan facility, a new facility specifically for elderly care home residents who contract the virus.
Last week was a particularly shocking run for COVID-19 in Malta, with active cases of the virus hitting 2,000 and an average of three deaths being registered every day.
What do you make of this?
