Was accepting refugees from strife-torn areas in the Middle East a bad decision for Germany?

After being welcomed by the European nation, tens of thousands of migrants are bringing not just diseases but also chaos to Germany, according to a shocking letter written by a female Czech anaesthetist currently working in a German hospital, the Daily Express reported.

The letter, sent and read on the Czech television channel CNTV, described how the asylum-seekers are supposedly overwhelming and causing problems to the German health service.

"Clinics cannot handle emergencies, so they are starting to send everything to the hospitals," the female medical worker, who wished to remain anonymous, said in her letter as quoted in the Daily Express.

She said German hospitals can no longer cope with diseases carried by the refugees from the Middle East, since the illnesses have long been eradicated in Europe.

"Many migrants have AIDS, syphilis, open TB and many exotic diseases that we, in Europe, do not know how to treat," the doctor said.

Worse, these diseases can be transmitted to Europeans, she added.

Not only these, Middle Eastern refugees are also causing instability and chaos in hospitals, the Czech doctor said. This is primarily due to the fact that the asylum-seekers discriminate against female medical workers.

"Many Muslims are refusing treatment by female staff. Relations between the staff and migrants are going from bad to worse," she said.

Some migrant parents even refuse to pay medicines, and end up leaving their kids in pharmacies out of frustration.

"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," the female doctor told in her letter.

"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," she said.
