Greece has just overtaken Italy in the most new migrants arriving per day category. Unfortunately with the open door type policy in Greece we are seeing a lot of problems. People are fleeing Syrian war zones and looking for a safe place to go. Greece is having issues keeping its own people in adequate living conditions let alone the thousands of refugees that arrive every day. The islands of Lesbos are overwhelmed with population issues.
We are starting to see the problem of population and living conditions really pick up in Lesbos. Greece has economic issues, they have little resources on their own and they have little space. We are seeing the combination of the economic collapse and this refugee crisis spiraling out of control. The rest of Europe seems to be watching as the failure of the Greeks refugee management is overwhelming the country.
The safest thing to do right now is coordinating a better plan. They need to get other countries more involved; they need the refugees to be transferred to larger more economically stable countries that can handle crisis situations more adequately. Greece has done all it can do at this point and is struggling to keep the good deed of accepting and somewhat saving these refugees alive. With help from other countries and a better management system where the people can be transferred, fed and housed these survivors will have a better shot at survival.
