There are 12 COVID-19 patients being treated at Mater Dei Hospital. Two of these people are receiving treatment in the hospital's ITU. 

Until Saturday, health professionals administered 927,127 doses of COVID-19 vaccines. The figure includes first and second doses of the Pfizer, Moderna, and Astrazeneca vaccines, the single-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine, and recent booster doses.

The booster doses make up 93,247 of the total tally.

Malta was recently taken off the ECDC green travel list as a result of rising COVID-19 cases locally. It was not the only country to be relegated to the orange travel list, with the majority of EU countries situated on either the orange or red list. 

Countries with the best infection and positivity rates are classified as green, followed by those in orange, then red. The worst-hit countries are listed in the dark red category.
