In total there are five active coronavirus cases at Vial at present.
Meanwhile, two more migrant camps, which are located on the Greek mainland, have also been locked down as a result of the presence of infections there.
It was reported by the Greek Migration Ministry that three individuals have now tested positive for the virus at a facility in the Evros region, at Fylakio. Another case has also been diagnosed at a migrant facility near the city of Drama.
Strict coronavirus measures are already in force in all migrant and refugee camps around the country. The Vial outbreak was of particular note because of the terrible overcrowding at that island  facility. Designed to hold just over a thousand people, it is now home to more than 3,800.
