    But while the numbers appear low, Superintendent for Public Health Charmaine Gauci said it did not mean the amount of cases in the country is declining.

    "These are early days yet. It is not the first time we have had a slump in cases, only for them to pick up again," she said.

    Some 292 tests were carried out and all three of those who confirmed positive were imported cases, meaning they contracted COVID-19 while abroad.

    They are a 20-year-old woman who arrived from the UK and started experiencing symptoms on March 22. She had stayed in quarantine so only the people who live with her were exposed to the virus.

    Malta registered 17 new cases of coronavirus in the last day and 107 cases are confirmed.
    On Sunday, authorities carried out 304 tests and 17 people tested positive.

    Ten of the new patients had travelled abroad recently or had come in contact with someone who had, while the remainder contracted the virus in the community. 
    The new cases bring Malta's total to 107, including two patients who have recovered. So far, 3,099 tests have been carried out.

    Gauci said: "This is a number we have expected. The aim is to control it as it continues to increase.
    "What's important is that we are managing it by tracing cases, and in fact most cases are clusters, meaning we traced them ourselves. Index cases, ie those that turn up on their own, are low."
