2590cc9d4bce0f57e111fd054de112de669fffce-1584090965-5e6b4f55-960x640Superintendent of public health Charmaine Gauci has announced there were three new coronavirus cases in Malta confirmed overnight, bringing the total to 110.

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. 

The second case is another 20-year-old woman, a university student who travelled to London on March 4-9 with a group. She had attended a lecture when she returned to Malta on March 10, the day before she started to experience symptoms. Fellow students in close contact with her are being traced by the authorities. 

The third case is a 49-year-old American man who went to Austria and obeyed quarantine advice on his return to Malta. He started to suffer symptoms on March 18 and only one person, who lives with him, was in contact with him.
