Overcrowding may also lead to the raise in diseases in the remaining centres, therefore, a need for the government to act swiftly with much more attention.

Hundreds of migrants have been fleeing to Italy hoping for greener pastures through the Mediterranean Sea.

Benghazi based Libya’s national army is also engaging UN-based government over the takeover of the city near the three centers set for closure.
