Am 27.11. eröffnen 2 weitere Hochsicherheitslager auf den Inseln #Leros und #Kos, 100% von der #EU-Kommission finanziert & vom griechischen Migrationsministerium umgesetzt. Am Montag kündigte Generalsekretär für Einwanderungspolitik, Patroklos Georgiadis, in Rundschreiben an...
...dass alle Geflüchteten, die von nun an über den Landweg nach #Griechenland einreisen (63% im letzten Jahr), nicht mehr in Athen oder Thessaloniki einen Asylantrag stellen können, sondern auf die Ägäischen Inseln übersetzt werden sollen, in eines der Hochsicherheitslager, (...) dort einen Asylantrag stellen zu können. Wird dies umgesetzt, bedeutet das, dass die Ägäischen Inseln nun auch für Menschen, die zuvor auf dem Festland waren, zu isolierten Pufferzonen vor dem Europäischen Festland werden, in denen sie auf unbestimmte Zeit festsitzen.

Thursday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here with the best #Covid19 global analysis and round up available on Twitter.

First a little quiz, answer in the next Tweet:
Do you know which country has had the most recorded cases of Covid19 as a percentage of population?
So I hope there was no cheating... I'll leave some blank lines here too in case some later viewers don't want the answer just yet...
So the nation with more #Covid19 cases than any other based on population is highly vaccinated #Seychelles at more than 20% infected.
Today I spent quite a long time being filmed/interviewed by @bbcturkce about #Covid19 and #Turkey. Not sure how much they will use, let's see.

Coincidentally the cameraman Efe, just happened to be in Kyiv as one of those using Ukraine for a 10 day stop off to avoid hotel prison!

TW: Self-harm
In the beginning of the month, detainees at the #Corinth pre-removal detention centre, about 85km west of #Athens, have protested against the he deplorable living conditions in the building. Protests were also aimed at the limited access to medical care. /1
Last week a resident harmed himself badly in an attempt to see a doctor for a medical condition but was denied access.

On March 24th Diabate Macky from Guinea-Conakry, had died in #Kos detention center after his requests to be taken to hospital had repeatedly gone ignored. /2
The functioning of the approx. 6 pre-removal facilities has been prolonged until 31 December 2022 under a Joint Ministerial Decision issued at the end of 2018. The estimated budged set our for the prisons was over 80,000,000€. /3

Saturday's #Coronavirus megathread starts here.

Thanks so much for everyone who contributed yesterday, if you have no idea what I'm on about here's another sneaky link to my crowdfunder!

It's a quite start today following the flurry of news last night..…
So a lot of data and a couple of new stories came in during the last hour or so of Friday, including South America data.

You can catch up on #Argentina #Brazil #Colombia #Bulgaria #Norway stats, and some #OlympicGames news by clicking and scrolling ⬇️

Now more very concerning news from #Bahrain, one of the most vaccinated territories on the planet.

#Covid19 cases are still rising there - more worrying is the real increase in deaths too.
Second highest daily number of new cases & deaths in the latest update

Finally, here is Friday's #Coronavirus megathread

🚦review imminent, I'm getting a lot of questions.
I reply to everyone but it's so time consuming
I'm now working on 7-day rates for EVERY Greek island.

No obligation but if my efforts are worth £1, thx…
I'll continue to post free advice and data, so nothing will be hidden from anyone, so please don't be angry or upset! And yes you can still ask questions!

So the big news in UK today is that the single shot Jansen (J&J) #Covid19 vaccine has been approved…
The big #Covid19 data news overnight is that #Argentina smashed its own record again, topping 40,000 cases in a day for the first time.

41,080 new cases to be precise, up around 15% on last week's total.
Another 547 new deaths

@SCCorinthiansCD @siga_zaqueu Mais um escândalo #negacionista, @arthurlira_ @rpsenador?

now up @NYTimesAtWar the 3rd dispatch from my long term reporting project following several families from #Syria rebuilding their lives in Europe (currently in year 5)
His Family Fled Syria. He Didn’t Cry Until He Heard About His Sisters.…
I met Yousef, his mother, and 2 sisters in #Kos #Greece after they crossed the Aegean Sea in an over stuffed rubber dinghy of folks mostly from #Iraq and #Syria - Yousef was 13. This picture is from when they made it safely ashore after stalling adrift Image
His single mother sold off everything to fund their journey from #Syria - to help, Yousef offered up what he had of value - a PlayStation 2. Their plan was to reunite with his other sister who had asked for asylum in the #Netherlands

Thread 1.| Protests and strikes today in #Lesvos, #Chios, #Samos, #Leros, #Kos against the presence of #hotspots and the plans for new closed reception and detention centers. All the trade associations and local authorities call for the protest. #OpentTheIslands #Refugeesgr
2. The main tone is that the local population is angry with the situation and the negligence of the government. In ##Chios & in Lesvos a lot of people participated in the protests. The officials' speeches were pointing the need to stop the new centers and this inhuman situation
3. The general atmosphere from the published texts seems to be mainly against #refugees, strengthening #racism and #xenophobia, although there are also voices with a #humanitarian approach like the union of Chios Psychiatrists…
