Abstract: COVID-19 threw Malta into a sudden and unexpected recession and public health emergency. The following article describes state support measures designed to protect employment and organisations during the first 12 months of this pandemic, as well as their impacts. Key amongst these measures was the wage supplement which provided workers and self-employed individuals within the worst impacted sectors with a source of income. Whilst Malta’s GDP dropped by around 7% in 2020 compared with 2019, unemployment remained low suggesting that support measures were effective.
