A number of doctors talked about the spread of some infectious diseases among newly deported refugees from Pakistan.
Some of these doctors said that many of the patients have infectious skin diseases, the prevalence of which was rare in the country before.
Among dozens of sick people who have recently been deported from Pakistan, Aqela, a refugee, called for the Afghan caretaker government to pay serious attention to the health challenges of the deported refugees.
"We came here out of necessity. I have children and Pakistan forced us, otherwise why would anyone bother to come during the cold season?" Aqela told TOLOnews.
"refugees who have been expelled from Pakistan have brought diseases from this country with them, such as skin diseases, eczema, and also diseases that they have encountered along the way, such as diarrhea and seasonal diseases, which have become problematic due to the cold weather," said Wasi, a doctor.
A number of refugees who are suffering from various diseases asked the caretaker government to treat their illness before it becomes a big challenge.
"I have a heart disease and I'm shaking so much that I can't even pray," said Fatima, an expelled refugee.
"In Pakistan, where we lived, the police didn't treat us right, and even when we got sick, they harassed us in hospitals," said Rahimullah, an expelled refugee.
Meanwhile, the Islamic Emirate announced the continuation of talks with the Pakistani authorities to stop the deportation of Afghan refugees from this country on the eve of winter.
"Meetings were held with them and they are in touch with all levels through the embassies and communication committees that we have along the line, but those who made this decision are unfair and against the principles," said Bilal Karimi, the deputy spokesman of the Islamic Emirate.
Earlier, the World Health Organization said that they need 10 million dollars in aid to provide health services to the refugees who voluntarily or forcibly return to the country from Pakistan.
This organization also warned of the spread of infectious diseases among returning refugees and said that without timely help and the provision of health services, there is a possibility of an increasing death rate among patients.
