The coronavirus has spread to the Greek island of Lesbos – just 10 miles away from 27,000 migrants living in squalor at a refugee camp.
An unidentified 40-year-old woman has been diagnosed with the killer disease, the island’s first case, after having recently travelled to Israel and Egypt.
She was placed in quarantine on Sunday, the public ERT television reported.
Greek authorities have expressed concern over the possibility of the virus spreading on islands such as Lesbos, where thousands of migrants are crammed in overcrowded camps or living rough.
A school, attended by the woman’s two children in Plomari, was closed amid fears of an outbreak.
