Copia-di-COVID-19-Quanto-e-sicuro-cio-che-viene-considerato-sicuroHealthcare workers have come together to urge the government to rethink its decision to re-open restaurants and hairdressers on Friday as 15 new COVID-19 cases were registered over night. 

Doctors, nurses, as well as the UHM, which represents various other healthcare professionals, say the spike in numbers in recent days meant it was no longer safe to do so. 

On Thursday, fifteen new cases of coronavirus were confirmed, from 1,358 tests, bringing the number of active cases in Malta to 125. 

No more details were released as the Superintendent of Public Health's news conferences have been reduced to three a week. 

The statement from healthcare workers said: "Today, with 15 new cases, a second wave of infections is with us and needs to be dealt with immediately and effectively."

The number of registered cases over the past few days confirm the spike in new coronavirus patients was not a one-off but is now the trend, Medical Association of Malta head Martin Balzan told Times of Malta.
