[Greece] Baby dies in Moria migrant camp, MSF reveals

17 Nov 2019

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) said on Saturday that a nine-month-old baby died at the Moria migrant camp due to severe dehydration.

The child from the Congo was diagnosed with symptoms of dehydration on 10th November. The baby was then transferred to the nearby Mytilene Hospital but passed away before arriving.

According to MSF, there are recently 15,000 people in the Moria camp, which is five times higher than its maximum capacity.

"They should be removed out of this hell now," the NGO urged.
