Added to that, German hospitals are struggling to cope because so many new patients require treatments for diseases long since eradicated in Europe.
The anaesthetist further described how migrant parents were simply abandoning their children at pharmacies across the country after being told that they have to pay a prescription charge for lifesaving drugs.
Many of the diseases now treated in Germany were previously unheard of, including Louse-borne Relapsing Fever (LBRF), a disease that had previously never been seen by German doctors.
Since 2015, 48 people have been diagnosed with LBRF in Germany, which is carried through clothing lice by a number of migrants from East Africa who had been travelling for months whilst wearing the same clothes.
Several doctors and healthcare experts have reported that diseases that were previously thought to be eradicated in Germany have also made a return.
In September 2015, Director of International Relations for the German Hospital Federation, Marc Schreiner, said: “More and more patients in the clinics are arriving with diseases that have previously been eradicated in Germany. Scabies, for example. These diseases have to be reliably diagnosed, and that is a challenge. Prospectively, the increase in immigration should be an occasion to examine very carefully whether our capacities are sufficient.”
The Robert Koch Institute (RKI), a German government agency and research institute which is responsible for disease control and prevention, publish an annual report which provides a summary of infectious diseases in Germany. Their latest report, which was published this year, provided data on the status of over 50 infectious diseases in Germany for the period of 2016.
The report confirms an across-the-board increase in infectious diseases in Germany since 2015, including, but not limited to: HIV/AIDS, leprosy, malaria, measles, Meningococcal meningitis, syphilis, tuberculosis, typhus and whooping cough.
Only tropical diseases which were brought into the country from Africa have been contained and there have been no mass outbreaks among the general population.
The RKI’s report makes abundantly clear the correlations that exist between ethnicity and health. Hepatitis B as an example – where the number of reported incidences has increased from 755 cases in 2014, to 3006 cases in 2016 – most of the reported cases involve unvaccinated migrants from Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.
HIV and AIDS is another clear example, where 40% of reported cases since 2015 are linked to unvaccinated migrants.
The anaesthetist, a Czech citizen working in the UK, alerted the media in the Czech Republic to express her shock at the “unsustainable” situation affecting the medical care received by taxpaying Germans. “Clinics can no longer handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals.
“Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse. Since last weekend, migrants going to the hospitals must be accompanied by police with K-9 units.
“Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat them. If they receive a prescription in the pharmacy, they learn they have to pay cash.
“This leads to unbelievable outbursts, especially when it is about drugs for the children. They abandon the children with pharmacy staff with the words: ‘So, cure them here yourselves!’ So the police are not just guarding the clinics and hospitals, but also large pharmacies.
“For now, the local hospital staff has not come down with the diseases they brought here, but, with so many hundreds of patients every day – this is just a question of time.”
One particularly shocking incident happened when migrants stabbed the doctors who tried to save a tiny eight-month-old baby which had been “dragged across half of Europe for three months”.
The Czech doctor described how the parents became upset when the baby died and stabbed the doctor and two nurses in a knife attack: “The child died in two days, despite having received top care at one of the best pediatric clinics in Germany. The physician had to undergo surgery and two nurses are laid up in the ICU. Nobody has been punished.
“The local press is forbidden to write about it, so we know about it through email. What would have happened to a German if he had stabbed a doctor and nurses with a knife?
“Or if he had flung his own syphilis-infected urine into a nurse’s face and so threatened her with infection? At a minimum he’d go straight to jail and later to court. With these people – so far, nothing has happened.”
She said Germans who displayed the “Refugees Welcome” banners should rather be volunteering in hospitals to get a taste of their largesse. “If it were up to me I would round up all these greeters and bring them here first to our hospital’s emergency ward, as attendants.
“Then, into one building with the migrants so they can look after them there themselves, without armed police, without police dogs who today are in every hospital here in Bavaria, and without medical help.”
Some doctors say the actual number of cases of tuberculosis is far higher than the official figures suggest and have accused the RKI of downplaying the threat in an effort to avoid fueling anti-immigration sentiments.
“Around 700 000 to 800 000 applications for asylum were submitted and 300 000 refugees have disappeared. Have they been checked? Do they come from the high-risk countries?” Carsten Boos, orthopedic surgeon, asked in an interview with Focus magazine.
An entire wing of a hospital in Bonn was closed after an outbreak of scabies. The area was cleaned and disinfected and sick patients were sent to an isolation ward.
The number of people diagnosed with scabies in North Rhine-Westphalia have spiked by nearly 3 000 percent between 2013 and 2016, according to local health officials.
