Hotel Used as UN Asylum Center Quarantined After 150 Test Positive For Coronavirus

A Greek hotel being used by the United Nations as an asylum center has been quarantined after 150 migrants and staff tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus, according to reports.

The U.N. International Organization for Migration has been using the Porto Heli hotel in Kranidi, Greece, as a ‘temporary accommodation facility’ for nearly 500 migrants from sub-Saharan Africa.

“The hostel is home to many single-parent families, coming mainly from the Democratic Republic of Congo and Cameroon,” InfoMigrants reports. “The facility is managed by the International Organization for Migration (IOM).”
