New refugee camp opens on Greece's Lesbos after Moria fire

A new camp has opened shortly after a fire decimated Moria camp leaving 13,000 refugees and migrants homeless in Lesbos, Greece.

According to reports, around 1,200 people have been moved into the Kara Tepe camp which is expected to house 5,000.

There is a specific area for those who have tested positive for COVID-19 and everyone entering the camp is tested.

Many refugees are reluctant to move in as they fear conditions will be no better than the Moria camp, reports said.

This footage was filmed on September 17.
