Greek authorities have now moved about 9,000 of the 12,000 migrants from the burned Moria camp in Lesvos to an emergency camp, the Greek news agency reports. ANA-MPA Saturday. The camp is located near the capital of Lesvos, Mytilini.

Protest against temporary camp

213 coronavirus infections have currently been confirmed among migrants on Moria. They have been quarantined in a separate part of the emergency camp.

Roads near Moria were occupied by migrants who had nowhere to go because Moria was burned down. Those roads are now open again. Various locations on Moria are cleaned and disinfected. Businesses in the immediate area are closed and are expected to reopen on September 21.

Last week, fires broke out in the overcrowded Moria refugee camp. The camp had been placed in isolation due to the COVID-19 outbreak in the camp. People may have started fires in protest against these measures, but this has not been proven. The Greek police have arrested five people on suspicion of involvement in the fires.

The temporary camp actually has room for five thousand migrants. However, many migrants refuse to enter the new facility. The refugees fear that they will have to live in the temporary camp under the same conditions as in Moria and want to leave the island.

The cabinet has already announced in a letter to the Lower House that it is prepared to accept a total of 100 refugees from the burned camp if the Greek government comes with a request. Germany is also prepared to accept refugees. The country says it has room for 1,500 migrants.

The Greek Prime Minister has promised a new permanent migrant center in Lesvos, with better facilities than Moria. This goes against protests from residents of Lesvos, who do not want a permanent refugee camp.
