The number of migrants coming ashore in Greece surged 21 times as of the middle of January compared to the whole of January 2015, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) said Tuesday.
In the 30 days of January 2015, 1,472 migrants arrived or an average of 47 a day.
In the first 18 or so days of January 2016, 31,244 arrived or an average of 1735.
That represents a 36 fold increase, not a 21 fold increase according to the mainstream media spin.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – The agency estimates the number of people arriving in Greece by sea has reached 31,244 since the start of the year. Last January, the Greek coast guard reported a total of 1,472 arrivals.
Almost half of the new arrivals were Syrian refugees fleeing the five-year conflict in their home country. Afghan nationals were the second largest group, followed by Iraqis and Iranians, as well as people from North Africa.
The number of shipwreck casualties has also continued to grow in the first month of 2016 due to rough seas. A total of 95 people are estimated to have lost their lives so far.
