Health Superintendent Charmaine Gauci has confirmed that she has no intention of resigning.

Word is going round like wildfire on social media that the health chief handed in her resignation, possibly as a result of differences in the way the government is easing up restrictions related to the Coronavirus.

A spokesman for the government has already confirmed these rumours to be untrue.


Posting on Facebook, Gauci said: "The medical profession is inspired by vocation. Like any vocation, work requires sacrifices, dedication and love for what you are doing, because you know that what you are doing is influencing your life and what you are."

"I have the privilege to serve my country and you in difficult and unpredictable circumstances. We are at a crossroads and I will continue to play an important role with full responsibility and loyalty as I have always done."

"The rumours that I resigned, or that I was about to resign are a total invention. The cooperation of the public and the respect from the authorities, no matter what environment they come from, which has been shown to me in these times has been crucial so that together with my team and professionals we can do our job with the utmost dedication, impartiality and professionalism. And I will continue to do so."
