Lesbos: A total of 9,000 Migrants Rehoused in Kara Tepe Hotspot

September 19, 2020

KARA TEPE, Greece — The Greek police operation to rehouse all migrants and refugees from the burnt hotspot of Moria to Kara Tepe in eastern Lesvos will be completed on Saturday, authorities said.

Following the catastrophic fires at Moria on September 8 and 9, a total of 9,000 people were rehoused by Saturday morning at the hotspot of Kara Tepe, south of Mytilini. All of them have been identified and their asylum applications are in process. Of them, 213 were found positive to the novel coronavirus and have been quarantined at separate quarters in the hotspot.

Roads near Moria that had been occupied by the displaced migrants after the fire have opened to regular traffic, while crews are cleaning and disinfecting both public and private spaces. In addition, area businesses in the area that had shut down on Sept. 9 are expected to reopen on Sept. 21.
