A number of positive coronavirus cases have been found within the Cardiac Ward in Mater Dei Hospital.

A number of healthcare professionals and patients within this ward are now in quarantine. Questions sent to the Ministry of Health via email have gone unanswered as yet.

Superintendent of Public Health Professor Charmaine Gauci is expected to address the media tomorrow.

The number of cases in Malta is now 267 since 20 cases were found today. Due to this rapid increase in cases, the CDC is warning travellers against visiting Malta.
