“Most immigrants have understood the quarantine message” – AWAS

The majority of immigrants at the Hal Far Open Centre have understood the message and are cooperating. This was announced by Mauro Farrugia, CEO of the non-governmental organization working with immigrants.

Mr Farrugia was speaking about the mandatory quarantine imposed on all immigrants yesterday at the Hal-Far centre. He said that AWAS has used interpreters and people who enjoy the confidence of immigrants to make the message clear.

He said AWAS workers were making themselves available at the Centre 24 hours a day for any eventuality.

He clarified that there were no immigrants infected with Covid-19 at the Ħal Far Centre, but that immigrants who may have been exposed to the virus were being quarantined there.

Last night, consistent with what was observed in recent hours, there was heavy police and soldier presence at the Open Centre.
