5 fined €100 for being in groups of more than 3


5 persons were fined €100 each during the continuous patrols that the Police are doing to ensure that there are no groups of more than 3 persons in public places as per the legal notice issued by the Government.

No one was found breaking obligatory quarantine during the 605 inspections carried out in the last 24 hours. This was announced in the daily bulletin issued by the Government.

39 more persons have recovered from Covid-19. 10 of these are over 60 years old, among whom are 3 over 80 years of age. This means that now 204 persons are free of the virus. In the last 24 hours 641 tests were done, with only one person testing positive, and despite this person having no symptoms, he was identified via random testing that the health authorities are doing regularly within the community. There are now 238 remaining active cases in the country.

The bulletin also says that Marsovin, one of the main wine companies in Malta, changed part of its production line for alcohol to produce hand sanitizers. With this innovation, the company also ensured continuity in its business without laying off its employees. The hand sanitizer bottles, 6,700 in all, were given for free by Marsovin to be used in, among others, hospitals and health centres, and by the public.
