It is important to note that some of these new cases were not showing symptoms or were showing very weak symptoms.

Fearne insisted that the authorities were expecting this figure to come out a few days ago according to the model curve predicted. He continued to say how he was not surprised by the numbers since it was expected to reach that amount.

Gauci emphasized that the measures taken of social distancing and that people are to stay home unless for necessary situations is important since it is evident that there is a local transmission and you never know who you will meet that might be carrying the virus.
