Despite being a weekday, 121 people were fined €100 each on Monday for gathering in groups of more than three.
The number shows an increase when compared to the weekend when 100 fines were handed out for the same offence.
The legal notice prohibiting public gatherings was introduced as a preventative measure to curb the spread of COVID-19.
Malta has seen an incredibly low number of new coronavirus cases over the past few days but directives promoting social distancing still remain in place and police will continue to patrol the streets until further notice.
“The appeal remains that everyone should remain responsible and cooperate with the directives being issued by the authorities,” they said.
Thankfully, no one was found breaking mandatory quarantine during the 430 inspections carried out in the last 24 hours.
