539 new cases of Covid-19 were reported by health authorities on Thursday, as one patient died while positive for the virus.

265 recoveries from the virus were reported, taking the number of active cases up to 6,231.

1,871 swab tests were carried out in the last 24 hours, equating to a positivity rate of 28.8%.

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 103,132 cases of the virus. 95,764 of those have recovered, while 741 have died.
