Seventy-three new Covid-19 cases were recorded on Saturday, while the number of active cases has dropped to below 2,000, statistics published by the health authorities show.

The last time the number of active cases was below 2,000 was on 17 March.

One patient has died, taking the total number of victims to 717.

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 93,885 cases of the virus. 90,952 of those have recovered, while 717 have died.
