Malta Medical Association calls for withdrawal of permits for events of more than 10 people
Doctors will only perform emergency duties should these demands not be met.
As Malta’s active COVID-19 cases shot up to 99 overnight, Malta’s Medical Association (MAM) has issued a declaration of industrial dispute in which it calls for the permits of events of more than 10 people to be withdrawn starting on 3rd August.
This comes as concerns continue to mount over large-scale events planned to take place in the Maltese Islands over the coming weeks.
Warning that Malta’s doctors will only perform emergency duties should these demands not be met, the association also wrote that “All doctors in vulnerable groups as declared in legal notices in March or approved by management, are only to work on administrative or teleworking duties and avoid contact with patients” and “All other doctors are urged to help in work normally done by doctors in vulnerable groups and make sure that patients get all the necessary treatment."
The MAM has also called for public health care facilities to revert to emergency mode as of 3rd August.
