Germany: 13,000 chairs set up in Berlin as demand to evacuate Moria camp due to COVID-19

Activists set up 13,000 chairs in front of the German Parliament in a symbolic action demanding the evacuation of the Moria refugee camp on the Greek island of Lesbos due to its first confirmed COVID-19 cases, Berlin, Monday. The action, which was supported by such organisations as the Sea Watch, Seebrucke and No One Left Behind, intended to draw attention to the overcrowded facility, prompting the German government to help solve the issue. At least 17 confirmed COVID cases were registered last week which led the Greek authorities to place the Moria camp under a 14-day quarantine.
