A group of 94 migrants were brought to the island nation of Malta and at least 65 have tested positive for coronavirus, according to reports.
Authorities ‘rescued’ the migrants after they set off from Libya in a boat and became lost on the Mediterranean Sea for approximately 30 hours, eventually setting off a distress signal.
Most of the migrants reportedly hail from Eritrea, Morocco, and Sudan, the BBC reports.
After being brought to shore, Maltese authorities tested them for coronavirus, returning 65 confirmed cases, 20 negatives, and another nine pending or undetermined.
