Malta's total number of coronavirus cases has risen to 241 after 14 more people tested positive for COVID-19 overnight.

Superintendent of public health Charmaine Gauci delivered the latest numbers in her daily briefing on the spread of the virus. 

She also confirmed that police are searching for a coronavirus patient, who  escaped when being taken for treatment to Sir Paul Boffa hospital. 

The new positive cases came from 555 tests. Of the 241 people with coronavirus in Malta and Gozo, five have since recovered. 

Gauci said most of the remaining cases are in "good condition" and recovering at home. Those being treated in hospitals are in a range of facilities across the islands. 

  • Three people are in the Intensive Treatment Unit at Mater Dei;
  • Two are in Mount Carmel hospital;
  • Eight are at Mater Dei;
  • 16 are at Sir Paul Boffa;

Case three, four and five were all patients at Mount Carmel psychiatric hospital. They are a 55-year-old Maltese woman, a 34-year-old Libyan man and a 32-year-old Egyptian man who lives in Hal Far open centre.
