The maximum number of people that may gather in a public space will be reduced from the present limit of 15 to 10 as from Thursday, 1 October, the Health Ministry announced.

The ministry said that the measure was being introduced to further contain the spread of Covid-19.

The limit applies in all public spaces, including queues and bus stops, unless social distancing is properly maintained. It does not apply in cases where all those concerned live in the same household.

23 new cases of Covid-19 were reported in the latest daily bulletin, while 78 patients were deemed to have recovered.
