Culture-Enriching Migrants Riot at Asylum Center in Germany (Video)

Another casualty of the Wuhan Coronavirus: the peace and calm at a German refugee facility.

The following video reports concern food riots at an asylum center in Halberstadt. The facility is under full quarantine because of a resident who tested positive for the coronavirus. Inmates are no longer allowed to venture out to do their own grocery shopping, so prepared food has had to be delivered to them. The meals they have been receiving are not to their taste, which has made them cranky.

Many thanks to MissPiggy for the translations, and to Vlad Tepes for the subtitling.

00:15 is that not every resident is able to get a connection.

00:24 The trigger was the food. There is no communal kitchen.
00:28 For that reason, we depend on a catering service,
00:33 and trying to meet everyone’s needs or tastes would be an impossible feat.

00:49 Since this isn’t possible, the people here
00:53 are very stressed. In the future another catering service will deliver food.
