Coronavirus Cases Rise Among Moria Refugees in Lesbos, Greece

Bloomberg QuickTake News published this video item, entitled “Coronavirus Cases Rise Among Moria Refugees in Lesbos, Greece” – below is their description.

Authorities in Greece said on Thursday that 135 cases of coronavirus have been discovered among migrants and refugees on the island of Lesbos after several thousand people were tested. Migration Minister Notis Mitarachis said the infections were discovered after some 5,000 migrants made homeless by a fire at a large refugee camp last week were escorted by police to a temporary new site. It was not immediately clear whether any of the cases announced on the island on Thursday included any of the 35 detections confirmed before the fire. Nationwide, Greece reported 359 new cases and nine new deaths, raising the death toll to 325 and the total number of confirmed infections since the start of the pandemic to 14,400. The spike in cases prompted the government to impose additional restrictive measures in greater Athens this week through Sept. 30.
