On request, Qatar’s government press office said that the emirate was home to more than 1.4 million people from all walks of life from these countries.

 The  country has come under international criticism for the exploitation of guest workers. Qatar’s government, on the other hand, says that reforms in recent years have significantly improved the situation of workers. Human rights activists also admit progress, but warn that the reforms are inadequately implemented.
According to the Guardian, 69 percent of those who died in India, Nepal and Bangladesh were cited as natural causes. Among the guest workers from India it was 80 percent. According to the British newspaper, this cause of death is often due to acute heart or lung failure. © www.de24.news

 The  “Guardian” refers to the intense heat in Qatar during the summer. Qatar’s government, on the other hand, states that work in the open air is prohibited in the midday hours of the summer months.
