New COVID-19 measures announced on Thursday following a spike in coronavirus cases include a ban on mass gatherings and the closure of restaurants.

The heightened measures did not discourage some 60 people from meeting in ─Žamrun for a tombola. Enforcement officers from Transport Malta broke up the party on Sunday afternoon and fined the organiser.

The decision to close eateries has been given a lukewarm welcome by two major health associations that are questioning the effectiveness of allowing households to mix.
