Headline: COVID-19: The asylum system continues to work during the pandemic
Even in the tense situation caused by the pandemic over the past few months, the SEM has carried out asylum procedures and evictions. The dismantling of asylum applications that were submitted before the new Asylum Act came into force has for the most part been completed. At the moment, however, the federal asylum centers hardly have any vacant accommodation, so the federal government urgently needs additional structures. The hygiene and distance requirements are strictly adhered to in the federal asylum centers. To date, around 160 asylum seekers have tested positive for COVID-19.
