Calls for a ban on mass events are growing after the number of active COVID-19 cases shot up to 26.

Malta had previously whittled down active cases to nearly zero, even going several consecutive days without a single new case.

However, after one person tested positive for the virus on Thursday, another six were found on Friday and a further 14 people tested positive on Sunday. The Health Ministry said that nine of the latest cases were linked to the Hotel Takeover Party of the previous weekend, while three others were sporadic and two imported. That party is now linked to 15 cases in all.
