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.
