After nearly 50 migrants were forced to move onto a huge barge on the coast of the UK, they were shortly forced to leave again after a shocking and deadly discovery led to a full-scale evacuation.
Chaos Unleashed in Government’s Immigration Plans
An unexpected crisis has thrown the British government into confusion after they were forced to evacuate a barge that would become home to hundreds of migrants.
Asylum Seekers Removed
The Home Office acted quickly to remove all 39 asylum seekers from the vessel, which is docked at Portland Port in Dorset.
The Bibby Stockholm Barge has been all over the news recently as the British government controversially announced that it would home up to 500 migrants, removing them from hotels.
Despite reassurances from Immigration Minister Robert Jenrick that the barge was “perfectly decent accommodation,” the emergency evacuation proves otherwise.
Inhumane and Inhabitable?
Activists are now demanding that the barge’s use for migrants be stopped entirely.
The Shocking Revelation
A shocking and deadly bacteria outbreak is what led to the immediate evacuation of all migrants from the Bibby Stockholm barge.
Deadly Bacteria Named
The deadly bacteria is known as Legionella bacteria, and an outbreak has been discovered in the water supply of the barge.
Shocking Side Effects
After consuming Legionella bacteria, it’s possible to then contract pneumonia.
A Lucky Escape?
No one has fallen ill from Legionnaires’ disease, a severe type of pneumonia caused by Legionella bacteria.
A Disturbing Next Move
The Home Office learned about the Legionella discovery and yet six more asylum seekers were placed on the barge the next day.
Embarrassing Back Tracking
These six were removed later that evening, leading to the full evacuation two days later under the guidance of the UK Health Security Agency.
An Embarrassing Week for the UK
What was supposed to be a week of addressing immigration issues turned into chaos.
Bacterial Threat Still Lurks in Water System
Believed to come from the vessel’s pipes, the bacteria can lead to Legionnaires’ disease, a lung infection caused by inhaling water droplets.
