COVID-19 in Pregnant Refugee Quarantines Greek Camp

THESSALONIKI, Greece — Authorities in northern Greece have placed a refugee camp with about 1,500 residents under a 14-day quarantine after a pregnant Syrian woman living there tested positive for the coronavirus.

Local and Health Ministry officials said several schools in the area that were used for refugee education programs are temporarily closed.

Several refugee camps and shelters in Greece have reported virus cases but none so far have surfaced at the overcrowded facilities housing asylum-seekers on Greek islands near the Turkish coast where potential outbreaks are a source of serious concern over a potential outbreak.
