Refugees will be temporarily banned from leaving the accommodation center in Harmanli (Southeast Bulgaria) as of tomorrow, November 22. The measure was introduced due to fears of the local population over possible dissemination of infectious diseases. Some migrants from the refugee center were diagnosed with scabies, but we do not know yet what caused the irritation on the skin of the people shown by the media, Bulgaria’s Chief Health Inspector Doctor Angel Kunchev said. Over 13,000 medical examinations have been made at the refugee center in Harmanli since the beginning of 2016.
