    Turkey quarantines migrants at Greek border Turkey quarantines migrants at Greek border

    ISTANBUL - Turkish authorities on Friday morning evacuated several hundreds of migrants and refugees who had been camping for a month at the border with Greece after the government of Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced it would not be stopping anymore those who wanted to travel to the EU.

    According to Anadolu, the migrants agreed to be taken to a hosting facility in the border province of Edirne, where they will be quarantined to prevent the risk of contagion from coronavirus.

    After the period of isolation, the migrants will be invited to move to the Turkish provinces that are willing to host them.

    Over the past few days, several dozens of people had autonomously left the border area after a possible new agreement between Turkey and the EU had stalled, travelling to Istanbul and other cities on their own, without assistance nor preventive measures. (ANSAmed).
