Napier Barracks: Further cases of Covid-19 among asylum seekers




Several asylum seekers housed at a former military site have been removed from dormitories after they caught Covid-19,
the Home Office confirmed.

The department has not given figures for those infected at Kent's Napier Barracks but said there had been
"a small number" of cases.


An outbreak at the camp in Folkestone in January led to 200 people catching the virus and calls for its closure.


The Home Office said all public health protocols were being followed.


In June, the High Court ruled the decision to house cross-Channel migrants at the base was unlawful, after six people

housed there took the government to court over what they said were "squalid" and "unsafe" conditions.


On Thursday, the government confirmed all those who had tested positive had been removed from dormitories,
but could not say if others were self-isolating.


However, the Press Association has reported four dormitory blocks are in isolation after three cases of coronavirus
were found, and also understands new transfers to Napier were halted after the court judgement, but resumed
about two weeks ago.


About 230 people are currently living at the site, which uses dormitory-style accommodation.
