Еще announced that «coronavirus measures of confinement for those living in migrant camps and reception centres are prolonged until 21 May.» On May 12, two migrants arriving by sea to the Greek island were tested positive for the coronavirus, prompting calls for the evacuation of the crowded camp. While other camps had reported some infection cases on Lesbos island, the Moria camp had no cases. Greece has relaxed the coronavirus restrictions earlier this month by allowing some businesses, churches and means of transportation to run as normal. The country has opened some 500 of its beaches, as Greece prepares for the tourism season to be reopened in June. According to figures compiled by Johns Hopkins University, Greece has reported 2,850 confirmed coronavirus cases and 166 fatalities as of Thursday.
