Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-Copia-di-TURLES-3-2Government updates on the stepping up of enforcement to help control the growing spread of COVID-19 will be given ‘shortly’, the Office of the Prime Minister has said.

On Monday, the prime minister told a meeting with hoteliers that enforcement of COVID-19 containment measures must increase, though he did not provide any details. He did, however, give assurances that the government was not going to “choke any particular sector”.

Various health associations have called on the government to re-introduced measures to help slow down the spread, with the doctors’ association saying mask-wearing should be made mandatory everywhere. This was especially important in workplaces, where a number of cases have been detected in recent weeks.

The associations have also urged the authorities to enforce the existing measures more, saying the high number puts increasing pressure on the islands’ hospitals.
