The se are workers from India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka, the newspaper reported on Tuesday. The figures have been compiled from government sources.
The actual number of migrants who died during this period was significantly higher, as workers from other countries also came to the emirate, wrote the Guardian. 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.
Millions more have lived in Qatar in the past ten years and have returned home. A “small percentage” is different from these millions of people.
The death rate is in a range that can be expected for this size and this demographic composition.
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.
The vast majority of these cases are not related to work on the construction sites.
