A 94-year-old woman died while being positive with Covid-19. This marks the 30th COVID-19 related death in Malta, and the second one today.

The elderly woman tested positive for Covid-19 today, as part of routine tests being carried out in nursing homes, although it should be noted that in two previous tests, on the 9th and on the 14th September, she tested negative.

The Ministry of Health, while offering its condolences to the relatives of the elderly, called on the people to continue to follow the appeals of the Department of Health, including frequent hand washing, social distancing, and mask use.

Yesterday, there were a total of 3 deaths related to the virus.

The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) is considering Malta to be a country whose Covid-19 trend is one of “high concern,” with the country reporting one of the highest death rates in the EU.
