Sicily’s governor Nello Musumeci said that immigration detention centers have turned into "human slaughterhouses". In an interview with "Liberta", he said that the decision by the Ministry of the Interior to expand camps for immigrants in"Lampedusa" region was not in people’s favour. He demanded to provide decent conditions for migrants.
He mentioned how chaotic the scene was. Thousands of people are crammed into places that can accommodate a maximum of 190 people according to the law, and they are without protective masks.
Many humanitarian organizations have expressed their dissatisfaction with the poor health services and the inhumane conditions in the camps established by the Italian government for immigrants especially in light of Covid 19 epidemic.
