A Total of 1,200 Displaced Moria Residents Settled in New Camp at Kara Tepe

September 16, 2020

KARA TEPE, Greece — A total of 1,200 migrants and refugees had been installed in the new temporary hosting facility at the Kara Tepe firing range in Mytilene by Wednesday, after the new camp started to receive former residents of the burnt-down Moria hotspot last Saturday.

Thirty-five of them have so far tested positive for SARS-Cov-2 and have been quarantined in a special isolation area set up for this purpose within the facility.

The Mytilene-Thermi national road between the north entrance of Mytilene up to the new facility remains closed for the 8th consecutive day, as thousands of displaced former residents of the Moria hotspot remain camped out on the road, in surrounding fields and the businesses alongside it, which remain closed since last week.
