Every day we find ourselves glued to the television to check the number of new Coronavirus (Covid-19) cases for the day. The numbers seem small to us, however, Ms Vanessa Mifsud, a nurse at Mater Dei hospital explains it better.

In one of her posts, she explains that in actual fact, the numbers that seem low to us, are actually pretty high compared to other countries.

This is due to the fact that compared to other countries, we are small. We need to be more careful.

People need to stop looking at the numbers and think we’re doing fine… we are not! The staff at Mater Dei hospital are doing their best, health authorities have been working non-stop trying to contain the pandemic… we need to do our part!
