Because of the early start I missed a few countries from yesterday's thread, first I'll update these #Covid19 totals. Tweets during the day may be delayed due to travel & connectivity issues

Österreich muss Geflüchtete aufnehmen! #AktionswocheFlucht
Rattenbisse, Müllberge und kaum Sanitäranlagen:
Trotz “Hilfe vor Ort” und EU-Geldern in Millionenhöhe sind die Umstände in den griechischen Zeltlagern katastrophal. #WirHabenPlatz
Anstatt nachhaltige Unterstützung für Schutzsuchende zu finanzieren, wollen Entscheidungsträger_innen jetzt weitere Lager errichten. Das ist völlig untragbar! #KaraTepe #Moria #Lesbos
Österreich muss helfen, aber @sebastiankurz weigert sich seit Monaten, zu handeln. Schon über 40.000 Menschen haben sich deshalb unserem Appell an Bundeskanzler Kurz angeschlossen und fordern die Aufnahme von Geflüchteten aus #Lesbos.

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.

Finally, here is Friday's #Coronavirus megathread

🚦review imminent, I'm getting a lot of questions.

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!

Integrationsministerin Susanne #Raab beim #Lügen erwischt
Hatte Susanne Raab bloß keine Ahnung?

Ich sag es mal so: Wäre die #ÖVP eine Asylwerberin würde ihr jegliche Glaubwürdigkeit versagt werden. #Thread

#ZIB2 am 16.12.2020 zum Thema Aufnahme von Kindern aus #Moria:
Dezember 2020: Nach Brand im überfüllten Lager #Moria leben 1000e notleidende Schutzsuchende im Dreck auf #Lesbos. Ruf der #Zivilgesellschaft, zumindest Kinder aufzunehmen, wird laut.

#ÖVP blockt ab. Instrumentalisiert @SOSKinderdorfAT. Täuscht #HilfeVorOrt vor. Und: Lügt.
Druck ist groß: A bissal humanitär sein, es steht doch das #Weihnachtsfest vor der Tür! #ÖVP bleibt stur. Damit Stimmung in Bevölkerung nicht kippt wird auf "Aufnahmen" in der Vergangenheit verwiesen. #Blümel, #Nehammer und #Raab rücken aus.

Auf #Lesbos hat es Schneeregen, für die Nacht sind Minusgrade vorhergesagt. Es ist saukalt, die Leute frieren und haben nichts zu heizen. 1/3
Das Wetter ist so schlecht und bedrohlich, dass der Bürgermeister von Mytilini gestern Hallen am Hafen für obdachlose Griech:innen geöffnet hat. Derweil ist das Flüchtlingslager #Karatepe weiter im lockdown. Die Sommerzelte (etwa 50% aller Zelte) sind komplett durchnässt.
Es sei die "komplette Hölle", wird uns gesagt. Die nächsten Tage soll es kalt bleiben. Weil das Camp keine eigenen Generatoren hat und der reguläre Strom nicht reicht, was seit langem klar ist, können 800 Heizgeräte nicht betrieben werden.

⭕️This thread should make you understand why the new camp on the island of Lesbos is called #Moria2 by its inhabitants.

There is no dignity, safety or protection in this camp. Please take the time to read and retweet this thread.

Update: Since a few days there are some showers with warm water. Showers can be taken for only a few minutes once a week. But that does not mean that there are humane conditions now. We will open an extra thread tomorrow to explain the shower system.

The Greek catering company "Elaitis Events" provides the food. The company is based in Alifanta on #Lesbos. On their homepage they advertise that they deliver the best products Greece has to offer. It is the same food that was served in #Moria. Nothing has changed.

Was sich hier auf Twitter gerade in Sachen #Lesbos #KaraTepe tut berührt mich sehr! Ich danke Euch allen von Herzen, dass Ihr in der Praxis ans Licht bringt, dass wir Österreicher*innen sehr wohl aus tiefstem Herzen wünschen, dass diese unerträgliche Misshandlung von Menschen
SOFORT endet! Es schüttet hier in Strömen, Eltern sind total verzweifelt, weil Wasser in ihr Zelt dringt, Kinder nachts aus Angst und Hunger weinen. Auch die jungen Menschen, die uns bei unserer täglichen Arbeit im Camp helfen, alle sind am Rande ihres Fassungsvermögens.
Ich verstehe alle, die nicht hier sind, waren, dass die Realität hier extrem schwer nachzuvollziehen ist. Auch ich stehe gewissermaßen unter Schock, dass in #Europa solch ein Lager, solch eine verordnete Grausamkeit existieren darf. Es klingt ev theatralisch, doch was sich hier

Today, with @investigate_eu @reporters_gr and media partners @vice_de @openDemocracy @Publico we publish a first-hand document of EU's failure to protect the most vulnerable asylum seekers -unaccompanied minors.

#MoriaLogs #MoriaDiary…

Written by the people who were there to protect them, but often feel incapable of doing so, the personnel logbook reveals the horrors that unaccompanied minors in the "safe zone" were left to endure.…

"Safe zones" are separated areas inside refugee facilities, where minors without relatives live under supervision for their safety.

This logbook reveals an environment where the danger of electrocution is not only real, but far from the only concern.…

Ich finde es ja gut, dass sich viele Menschen auch Gedanken über die Flüchtlinge auf Lesbos machen. Zur Zeit drehen sich die meisten deutschen Tweets zum #Erdbeben um #Moria. Einerseits gut, andererseits auch völlig daneben...
Die Schäden in #Izmir sind verheerend mit vielen eingestürzten Hochhäusern. Eine dreistellige Opferzahl ist wahrscheinlich und viele weitere Verletzte ebenfalls. Dazu die Situation für die vielen Obdachlosen, gerade wegen der #Corona-Pandemie...
An der türkischen Küste südlich von Izmir hat der #Tsunami viele Häuser überschwemmt, die zum Zeil zuvor vom Beben beschädigt wurden. Ob und wie viele Opfer es dort gibt, ist nicht abzusehen...

#Greece #Lesbos #Moria #RefugeeCamp #Refugees #Coronavirus

The coronavirus continues to spread in the transitional camp for refugees on the Greek island of Lesbos. There are 243 confirmed cases among 7,000 previously tested residents of the camp,
said the state health agency Eody. 120 police officers and 40 camp employees tested negative. After the Moria refugee camp was destroyed by a fire, the camp was hastily built to accommodate the approximately 12,000 residents who had to sleep on the street or
in fields after the fire on September 8th. The camp stands on an unused military training area, a few kilometers from the destroyed Camp Moria. According to the authorities, all residents will be tested for corona infection when they move into the camp.

Almost half of the around 13,000 residents of the burned down refugee camp Moria on the Greek island of Lesbos have now been housed in the hastily built interim camp. 6000 people have now entered the camp,
said a spokesman for the Greek Ministry of Migration. According to this, 157 of them tested positive for the novel corona virus. After the fires in the Moria camp last week,
thousands of refugees on Lesvos slept by the roadside and in supermarket places under makeshift canopies made of branches or in camping tents. The Greek authorities started building a new camp on Saturday with UN support.

Shortly after a fire decimated Moria camp leaving 13,000 homeless refugees and migrants in Lesbos, Greece, a new camp has opened.
Roughly 1,200 people have been moved into the Kara Tepe camp which is planned to house 5,000, according to sources.

For those who have tested positive for COVID-19, there is a particular area and everyone entering the camp is tested.
Many refugees are unwilling to move in as they fear that circumstances would not be better than the camp of Moria, reports said. On September 17, this video was filmed.

Greek security forces arrested five suspected arsonists who reportedly set fire to the Moria registry camp last week. This was announced by the Greek Minister for Civil Protection, Michalis Chrysochoidis.
"The arsonists have been arrested. They are young migrants. Another one is still wanted," he said on the state radio (ERT). From police circles it was said that the five alleged arsonists were Afghans whose asylum applications had been rejected.
The Moria camp was almost completely destroyed in several simultaneous fires. More than 12,500 migrants remained homeless. To accommodate these people, Athens has set up a tent camp not far from the old one in Moria.
