442 new cases of Covid-19 were reported by health authorities on Sunday, as the number of active cases edged closer to the 5,000 mark.

156 recoveries from the virus were reported, taking the number of active cases up to 4,952.

1,755 swab tests were carried out in the last 24 hours, equating to a positivity rate of 25.1%.

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 101,036 cases of the virus. 94,948 of those have recovered, while 740 have died.
