GSD welcomes announcement that number of Covid restrictions will be eased over coming days

The GSD welcomes the announcement that a number of Covid restrictions will be eased over the coming days.  

Leader of the opposition, Keith Azopardi says that when you place restrictions on civil liberties, these need to be proportionate and justified.

Mr Azopardi says these also need to be placed in the context of the number of active cases. And that for this reason his party yesterday called on the social gathering rule to be removed.

The Leader of the Opposition says he welcomes the announcements made today., particularly the extension of business assistance measures.
