Red Cross sets up refugee clinic at Milan Central Station

Hundreds living rough in the entrance lobby

(ANSA) - Milan, June 11 - The Italian Red Cross told the regional public health service Thursday it has made a mobile clinic and an ambulance available to take care of hundreds of refugees who are sleeping rough in Milan's Central Station.
    The Red Cross acted "given the extremely serious situation at the station, where hundreds of refugees are living in the entrance lobby with very little health care and the probable presence of scabies in exponential growth".
    The mobile clinic will be operative beginning Thursday, the Red Cross said.
    The ambulance will be on call 8am-8pm. Also on Thursday, Ferrovie dello Stato rail company said it will "at its own expense" equip areas of the Central Station not in use by trains or passengers for refugee food and health care distribution.
