The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advise against all but essential travel to Malta. This is based on the current assessment of COVID-19 risks.

They must be doing lots of tests in Malta. In London you can't get a test, which is how "cases" are being kept nice and low.
If you want a picture of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face — forever.

Are you making it up Nick? Certainly not true in my experience. I rang for a test at 2.30pm (the operator was in Motherwell). I was given a 3.30pm appointment at the O2 in Greenwich, London. The (negative) result was in my in-box by 9.00am the next morning. My niece's son was feeling unwell last week (in Deptford, London). The whole family were tested the same day and got the (negative) results the next day.

Certainly not. I investigated the possibility of getting a test last week. I was offered a test on the following day, but the nearest was 15.4 miles from Central London. Since I had shown a symptom ( had I not claimed one the process would not have got started ) I was told not to use public transport. They recommended walking, which would be good for my health. Who are these people?

To check, I just repeated the process and was offered a test at 3pm today, 2.8 miles away. Can't really complain about that, and I wish I had kept a screenshot of the earlier debacle.

Of course, we are still not finding asymptomatic "cases", because they are not in general eligible for the test.

There is a huge amount of asymptomatic cases not detected. I think the Tiers are being reviewed next week.

You see where I see the masses say no or it can't be done I just see laziness and excuses and managed failure.
Shake off your excuses, your negativty, your keyboard warrior and get to Malta. All those that have attempted to be unkind to me....I understand your frustration with yourself and I really do not hold it against you. Life is hard and your failures seem never ending but most failures are good if you extract something positive from it.
