Five new cases of COVID-19 cases have been confirmed, Gauci has said. 

Four of those cases were locally transmitted, with one linked to overseas travel.

Authorities tested 432 people over the past day, for a total of 4,462 swabs since the virus reached Malta. 

More than 118,000 people in Malta are preparing for life under lockdown, with people over 65,
pregnant women, the chronically ill and anyone they live with ordered to remain home as of Saturday morning.
It is the second consecutive day when Malta has registered five new confirmed cases of COVID-19. 

But that is most likely not the true number, Gauci says. There are most likely cases but patients are not presenting themselves for testing.

“If you have symptoms, dial 111 and respect social distancing to reduce the virus spread and protect vulnerable peoples,” she says.

Gauci is reiterating that the police can now disperse any groups of five people or more. The measure was introduced because authorities were noticing people still gathering in groups outdoors, she says. 

Places where people must queue up – banks or supermarkets, for instance – are being helped to introduce crowd control measures to ensure safety.
