Despite 20 asylum seekers being infected with coronavirus at an asylum reception facility in the German city of Schwerin, the state’s interior minister refuses to implement quarantine measures to prevent a broader spread of the outbreak.
According to the interior ministry, five employees who work at for Malteser Werke, the operator of the facility, have fallen ill with the coronavirus sine the weekend, with three on Tuesday.
NDRreports that another 20 migrants at the facility, located in the German state of Mecklenberg-Vorpommen, have also been infected, with four having already recovered from the virus after being transported to an emergency asylum facility in Parchim.
No migrants have up until now required emergency hospital treatment and all reportedly are experiencing mild symptoms.
Although the migrants’ asylum facility is not under quarantine, workers who came in contact with the 20 infected migrants have been placed in isolation at their homes.
