Whilst one of the first patients who tested positive for Covid-19 has recovered well and was sent back home, another person tested positive.

This time it’s a 19-year-old woma. She is the thirteenth known COVID-19 patient in Malta.

She is believed to have contracted the virus while in Brussels between March 4 and 8 and first began reporting symptoms three days later, on March 11.

It is not known whether the woman had self-quarantined and authorities gave no indication as to whether she had been in close contact with other people in the three days before she began to exhibit symptoms.
