Refugee tested positive for Corona –
Augsburg – Because a refugee tested positive for Corona, the police had to move in on a major mission Thursday.
A group of 20 to 30 refugees from The Gambia and Nigeria absolutely wanted to be relocated. Because that was rejected, there were screams and turmoil. The police arrived with lots of patrols, hundreds and dogs.
Background: A refugee from Turkey arrived in Augsburg on Tuesday evening. On Wednesday it was tested in the government center on Aindlinger Straße on Corona. Thursday the result: positive! The Turk was relocated to an accommodation in Augsburg-Inningen.
But: “We had to find possible contact persons,” said Frank Kurtenbach (56), head of the anchor centers in Swabia.
There were six refugees from Turkey, Iraq, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan, Ukraine and Nigeria. All accommodated in the accommodation in Kobelweg.
As a precaution, the six people were moved to the 2nd floor. Kurtenbach: “The area is specially insulated and intended for Corona contact persons.”
