The Medical Association of Malta said it is very disappointed that the PM has blamed migrants for the sudden spike of Covid 19 cases.

It is most unfair to cover up his fault by blaming migrants, MAM said in a statement. Allowing mass events like parties against the expert advice of the superintendent was the only cause of this spike as migrants have been quarantined immediately as they remained in detention.


In fact European centre for disease control data does not include migrant data, MAM said.


In its statement, MAM also sent a graph with the trends of this data which shows a clear spike in the last two weeks following the organisation of mass events.

The graph is reproduced below.
