The flow of migrants continues unabated. While they think Greece is the route to getting to Germany and Sweden they will keep coming. If they are told, and it is enforced, that anyone who arrives in Greece will forever be barred from Germany and Sweden they will stop coming. However, this will take the cooperation of Germany and Sweden. Neither of those is likely to occur without a change of government.
In the past 24 hours, Chios saw 252 migrants arriving, a Frontex ship rescued 49 migrants off Lesvos, while the Hellenic Coast Guard rescued 15 people off Kalolimnos islet.
According to the national coordinating body for refugees, 2,324 migrants and refugees are on Chios, with 2,074 of them staying at the ELVIAL registration center which has a capacity of 894.
