The refugee and migrant camp of Malakasa in Attica was quarantined on Sunday morning, the Greek authorities announced.

The decision was taken after a 53-year old Afghan national, who lives there, was tested positive to the COVID-19 coronavirus.

The patient was transferred to a hospital in Athens.

The patient’s family has been put into isolation and there is an ongoing effort to see if anyone else from the camp has been contracted the virus.

For the next fourteen days, no entry or exit from the camp is allowed, while the Greek police have increased their presence to enforce the measure.

This is the second refugee and migrant camp in Greece to be put into quarantine, after that of Ritsona on the island of Euboea (Evia).
