The Chamber of Pharmacists (Kamra tal-Ispizjara) have issued a statement following the new measures announced last night by Deputy PM and Health Minister Chris Fearne and Superintendent of Public Health Charmaine Gauci in view of the current situation Malta is facing with the pandemic.

“Following the press conference yesterday by the Deputy Prime Minister and Minister for Health and the Superintendent for Public Health, and taking note of the comments of our frontline colleagues MAM and MUMN, the Kamra tal-Ispizjara ta' Malta reiterates that its dispute is still in force, retaining the right to issue further directives to pharmacists,” they share in a Facebook post this morning.

“The Kamra is dissatisfied with the Government's response to all its professional social partners where, regrettably, in acting against the most critical public health emergency of our lifetimes, guidelines regarding the safety of our nation could be based not on the best scientific data available, but on political considerations.”

In recent days, MAM called for the withdrawal of permits for more than 10 people, issuing a declaration of industrial dispute after active cases shot up this week. Yesterday, MUMN joined MAM’s call, also warning of industrial action should mass events not be cancelled by Monday.
