The Medical Association of Malta said that one last effort is necessary before the vaccine becomes available.
Both associations mentioned the aspects they are mostly concerned about and which authorities need to immediately address.
Both association said that they can no longer work in an environment where they are constantly undermined and called fearmongers, and they cannot be made responsible for the failure of the government to prioritise the population’s wellbeing over the short-term economic interests of the few.
MAM also announced that its council will be meeting on Wednesday to decide on the possibility of reactivating all directives.
The Medical Association of Malta noted that while Prime Minister Robert Abela might be having a change of heart and is considering re-introducing restrictive measures to decrease the number of active coronavirus cases, he seems more concerned about the tourism lobby rather than public health.
MAM announced this on Wednesday morning while stating that Malta is currently in the thick of a new epidemic caused by mass events which is leading to around 15 new cases per day amongst the local population, and has already been blacklisted by 4 EU countries.
MAM has also published European centre for disease control data which the association explained it does not include migrant data.
On Facebook the PL MEP questioned if MAM’s reaction was to humiliate the government and if this was the sole reason it was stupid to act in such manner. Alfred Sant said that there are other honest ways and means to tackle the situation from health professionals.
