Two new swabbing centres for the coronavirus have been opened at the Luxol Grounds in Pembroke and the Xewkija heliport in Gozo.

The hubs will help carry out more tests to identify those people who have contracted the virus and thus curb the contagion.

The two hubs will operate from Monday to Sunday between 8:00am and 8:00pm.
