Asylum-seekers are continuing to arrive on the shores of Greek islands such as Lesbos and Samos, with the crisis only getting worse.
The Greek government predicts 100,000 more people to arrive from Turkey in 2020.
Greece is predicting up to 100,000 asylum-seekers to arrive on its islands from Turkey in 2020, placing a further strain on its already bursting migrant camps.
“The crisis is happening now, and it is serious,” Manos Logothetis, government commissioner for migration, told the German Funk media group on Wednesday.
In the past six months, 45,000 refugees arrived in Greece, leading the government commissioner to say the situation was “clearly more critical” for Greece than the 2015 migrant crisis, at the high point of people fleeing the civil war in Syria.
