Yesterday, at the hospital we had a meeting about how the situation here and at the other Munich hospitals is unsustainable. Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals.
Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff and, we, women, are refusing to go among those animals, especially from Africa. 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.
Truly we said openly: Where are all those who had welcomed in front of TV cameras, with signs at train stations?! Yes, for now, the border has been closed, but a million of them are already here and we will definitely not be able to get rid of them.
Until now, the number of unemployed in Germany was 2.2 million. Now it will be at least 3.5 million. Most of these people are completely unemployable. A bare minimum of them have any education. What is more, their women usually do not work at all. I estimate that one in ten is pregnant. Hundreds of thousands of them have brought along infants and little kids under six, many emaciated and neglected.
My response to begin with is, surely you as a doctor must put human life first. Then I think about the real world. If a brother or sister died, you would take in their child and provide for them even if this meant you had to go without. Would you financially support the life of a complete stranger? I don’t mean just giving 20% of your whole income to them but actually supporting the whole person. (How much does the NHS pay for HIV meds each year? Is it still about £10,000pa ($14,400) + a home, food, clothing, heating, schooling for adults and children + forms of social connection, this list seems endless as I think about it more.
Then, what right does any man have to refuse health care treatment from someone because she is a woman?
People need time to live in harmony. They need to get used to new ways and feel a certain amount of security before they have the courage to change. But, you can not expect the German population to accept these asylum seekers without them making their own sacrifices to fit in.
If Germany can not succeed – where the most important person is a woman – then where can their possibly be hope?
Please remember that only a small percentage of the 1.3 million people taken in by Germany last year came from Syria. We also seem to overlook in the West, the support that Arab countries are giving to Syrian refugees.
