Five newly arrived asylum seekers have tested positive for Covid-19 upon arrival at the Heidelberg Centre for Asylum Seekers. This was announced by the Ministry of the Interior, Digitalisation and Migration of Baden-Württemberg. It is not known whether the Covid-19-infected persons were in contact with other residents of the Center for Asylum Seekers. Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Interior Thomas Strobl wants to have all refugees arriving in Germany tested for the Covid-19 virus. Fortunately, this has already happened in the past few days: “We have a special housing and living arrangement at the Centre for Asylum Seekers. Therefore, it is important to do everything possible to identify and isolate Corona infections in asylum seekers’ shelters and to prevent any possible spread”, said Strobl.
