76 new cases of Covid-19 were reported by health authorities on Tuesday, as Malta’s pandemic death count also increased by two.

160 people meanwhile have recovered from the virus, meaning that the number of active cases currently stands at 2,148.

1,520 swab tests were carried out in the last 24 hours, equating to a positivity rate of 5%.


The Health Ministry has, since the day after the 2022 general election at the end of March, stopped publishing daily bulletins on social media which show details about the pandemic in Malta.

Data is still being published by the Health Ministry’s COVID-19 Public Health Response Team on an open source database on the platform GitHub, although certain details such as the number of positive Covid-19 cases in hospital and the details about people who had died are not included in the dataset.

Malta has had 93,758 cases of the virus. 90,498 of those have recovered, while 716 have died.
