A fire broke out in a refugee camp on the Greek island of Samos on Sunday. However, the fire brigade got the fire under control and no one was injured. According to the representative of the fire department, there is no risk of the fire spreading.
The fire is already the second in Greek refugee camps during September. Earlier this month, the Moria refugee camp on the island of Lesbos was completely destroyed, driving nearly 13,000 asylum seekers to heaven. The cause of the fire was revealed to be arson, in which five suspects have been apprehended.
Both the Samos and Moria refugee camps have far exceeded their capacity. 650 asylum seekers were initially expected to attend the Samos camp, but nearly 6,000 people have ended up in the camp. The congestion of the camp has led to poor hygiene and repeated fires and fights.
Greek refugee camps are still under Korona arrest, although the rest of the country has slowly returned to a somewhat normal agenda since May. According to the Greek authorities, 21 coronary infections have been identified among asylum seekers.
