Three new migrants test positive for virus in Greece

Three migrants who recently arrived from Turkey have tested positive for coronavirus on the Greek island of Lesbos, officials said Saturday.

The migrants were part of a group of more than 30 people  picked up by a Greek coastguard vessel on June 14, and taken to a screening facility far from the island’s overcrowded refugee camps.

That facility has now been placed under two-week quarantine.

More than 190 people have died from COVID-19 in Greece.

No cases have been reported in camps on the islands, where there are nearly 30,000 people crammed in facilities built for fewer than 6,100.

The government has imposed a lockdown on the island camps until July 5.
