Coronavirus Double Bottom: The State of Medicine in Refugee Camps in Europe

46

The rapid spread of the coronavirus pandemic has called into question the future of modern European values. European countries will have to make a choice: either further uncontrolled reception of refugees and migrants, or epidemiological safety.


All quarantine measures that European countries are taking today can be completely useless against the backdrop of the presence in Europe of millions of refugees from Africa and Asia. Hundreds of thousands of immigrants from Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Libya, Somalia, Eritrea and many other countries live in European countries in tent towns and are not covered by the medical control system. This is an extremely favorable environment for the spread of any epidemic, given the limited access to normal medical care, crowding, low hygiene, and poor nutrition.

An ordinary European citizen using threats of penalties can be forced to comply with the regime of relative self-isolation in his own apartment. But what about refugees? It is simply impossible to provide hundreds of thousands of people with isolated rooms. Isolation in common areas, with a single kitchen and sanitary facilities, can hardly be considered as a reliable prevention of coronavirus. Yes, and how can you isolate someone in a camp ... In fact, the "double bottom" of the coronavirus. It is terrible to imagine what the situation in such a camp might turn out to be, even if only one person picks up the infection.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that many refugees are not at all keen to comply with quarantine, for the slightest reason they are ready to arrange unrest in the territory of their camps. For example, in the city of Suhl (Germany), about 533 police officers had to be transferred to a refugee camp, where 200 people were under self-isolation regime. The guards had to reassure the inhabitants of the camp who had fought among themselves.

Another consequence of the pandemic is the reduction in the number of volunteers who previously assisted social services in organizing the life of refugees. Few people want to get coronavirus, therefore, in many camps, the number of volunteer staff has dropped dramatically.


While the situation in the camps in Germany can still be relatively controlled, European politicians are most worried about the situation in refugee camps on the islands of Greece, for example, on the same Lesbos. Tens of thousands of refugees from Syria, Afghanistan and other countries are temporarily placed here. They are extremely crowded, without access to hygiene products.

The Greek authorities introduced an extremely tight camp control regime to prevent the spread of the virus. Now the EU leadership is thinking about evacuating from the Greek islands at least about 10 thousand minor refugees. To prevent the entry of new refugees from Turkey, the Greek border guard surrounded the border with barbed wire, using special means, but refugees, among whom, incidentally, are not Syrians, but Afghans, Pakistanis and Africans, do not leave hope to break into the country.

But the question arises: in the conditions when, in the name of fighting the pandemic, the rights and freedoms of the Europeans themselves are limited, is it worth accepting foreigners with an incomprehensible state of health, without medical documents? There is no doubt that the epidemiological situation in Europe, if it does not abandon the further “open door for all” policy, will worsen significantly.


Now all countries in Europe have abandoned programs for the placement of refugees in their territories. This was reported by representatives of the European Commission. Meanwhile, in Italy, and in France, and in Germany right-wing forces sharply intensified. For example, in Italy, the right-wingers criticized the government for allowing a ship with 276 saved Africans to arrive in Sicily. Otherwise, the position of the Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban, who declared the need to stop the 130 thousand refugees who are already on the Balkan Peninsula, begins to be perceived in Europe. All this leads already to political conflicts.

It is possible that the COVID-2019 pandemic will become the starting point that will fundamentally change the migration policy of most European countries.

    I would add to this a tougher and not tolerant or further uncontrolled reception of refugees and migrants, or national security.

        National security in Western Europe is not childishly tolerant for a long time blurred wealthy foreign migrants of the first generation of foreign migrants - supposedly also "refugees". Some of them already serve as measures of some European cities, etc. and determine the external and internal national state policy there.

        So the authorities in Europe are unlikely to shoot the newly arriving foreign "migrants" from the world's hot spots — they will not dare. Unless local nationalists desperately illegally take up this.

          If the state allows the emergence of a legal vacuum in this matter, then ordinary people will take up the pitchfork. And it’s not necessary that the nationalists. But given the "tolerance and tolerance" instilled by the same authorities, the chances that this will happen are pretty high.

    The COVID-2019 pandemic will be the starting point that will fundamentally change the migration policy of most European countries.

    Of course! If hundreds of thousands of unaccounted for people are hanging around the territory who arrived in the country and it is not known with what diseases and which do not comply with the requirements of the host country, then this is something that requires a review of migration policy and not only in the West, but also in Russia. The problem is the same

        More as it will be. After a couple of years, no one will remember the pandemic. They will talk about the economic crisis only in the light of the discussion of which crises still threaten and whether they will be larger than the 2020 crisis. Nothing in the world will change. There are no special prerequisites for this. According to the model, economic relations will not change, which means nothing will change much ... Well, they will indicate another year instead of 2020 ... but this is not something that can be attributed to the fact that the world has changed.

              I don’t think so ... The virus may have aggravated the trends that took place before it ... What happens because of the virus the oil prices of chondrots were before it ... The Chinese economy is slowing down so it started before the virus. Refugees and problems with them were before the virus. The general decline in economic activity does not matter in itself, it is just an indicator and after the end of the pandemic I think I’ll return to their places. Overproduction was also before the virus. Centrifugal processes in Europe began even at the time of the adoption of the rogue in the EU.

    The text is not objective and not logical, not once. Here is the first paragraph: Europe will have to make a choice: or further uncontrolled reception of refugees and migrants, or epidemiological safety.
    Author, no choice. For the sake of epidemiological safety, do you propose to shoot everyone at the border? If they are like lemmings, no matter what, the rod and the rod. Rod breaking cardones and rod through the codec. Or do they need to build cities? After passing through the cardon they fall under control. All refugees go through a bureaucratic machine and receive certain crusts. What is no longer uncontrollable.
    As necessary, in Europe, they are provided with medical care. What else is needed then?
    In the text further, I personally see more inconsistencies, but oh well, God be with them.

        No, I do not assume that all refugees enter Europe legally. On the contrary, I know that 99,999% cross borders illegally, that is, without papers and other documents. They are legalized later. "Surrendering" to the German authorities (for example), the Germans put them in dormitories, and not in a tent camp, give information and give out money for food. They also go to hospitals at the expense of the state. It should be mentioned here that the hospital is paid for them if people. really sick. For example, the tooth ached and there is no urine to endure it. They will tear it out or repair it at the state expense, but simply patch up the teeth, this is not. Only at your own expense.

          Yes, that's just Germany is the final stop and the dream of any "refugee". And you still have to get to her. And in order to get there, one must manage not to get caught in transit countries. And it turns out that at least three or four countries on their way to Germany are illegal. In time to estimate, too much work.

          Want to solve the problem without getting your hands dirty ..? Will not work. They really need to be shot and this needs to be done indicatively. Moreover, to shoot not only at the border, but also to shoot those who came to the authorities themselves to surrender or were caught in the territory by the authorities. I think after a few significant executions, the situation may begin to change.

    Here are refugees in Europe, they are not vaccinated there at all ..
    It is very dangerous !
    And our guest workers from all over the Union, they generally forgot about it (vaccinations, etc.) So it started
    But in the USSR, and in Russia now, children and adults are constantly vaccinated regularly and against flu (not everyone agrees), and yet work is being done with the population and especially children .. hi
    But if you don’t do these vaccinations en masse, the viruses mutate and become dangerous .. (a little temperature, they immediately swallow and inject antibiotics) And you can’t do this at home, they just suppress it, etc.
    Usually there is such a concept in medicine "seeding" They take your analysis and try to kill viruses with different antibiotics .. So they pick you up individually ..
