Deputy Prime Minister and Health Minister Chris Fearne said that authorities envisage the coronavirus cases trend in Malta and Gozo to increase in the coming days as this is what happens in a pandemic.
Minister Fearne stated this while being interviewed on Tuesday Morning during 103 breakfast show.
Minister Fearne said that all those involved in managing the strategy to combat coronavirus; health authorities, the medical staff and many others, feel emotional when they follow foreign news on coronavirus when they hear about the overwhelming situations in many hospitals.
He explained that there are many people who are currently working 20 hours a day or even more at times to make sure that Malta’s preparedness against coronavirus is always in check.
He also thanked all those people who are following the authorities’ advice and reiterated the importance of staying indoors even though today is a public holiday and many are not working.
Health Minister Chris Fearne also said that during these challenging times there is no room for partisanship as we are all in this together.
