Two new coronavirus cases were detected on Saturday at the refugee reception and identification center at Moria, Lesvos, from the first 500 samples collected by the National Public Health Organization (EODY) in and around the Moria hotspot.

These 2 newly infected patients lived near the tent of a 40-year old Somali man, a Moria resident, who tested Covid-19 positive on Wednesday and who is currently hospitalized at Mytilini general hospital with complications from underlying health issues.

The collection of 2,000 samples for diagnostic tests will be completed on Saturday, said EODY, and is being carried out at a health unit recently donated by the Dutch government.
