Dániel Eörsi, a Hungarian GP helping refugees from Ukraine, talked sincerely about the medical condition of the people crossing the Hungarian border. He said there were patients diagnosed with measles in one of the aid centres. Furthermore, the different medicines of Ukrainian citizens cause serious problems.
According to index.hu, Dániel Eörsi joined volunteer healthcare staff in an institution helping homeless people in Budapest. He said they met patients from every corner of the world, and it is common that their treatment differs from European standards. He added that it seemed to him sometimes that refugees coming from Ukraine received different treatment than the European scientific paradigm.
One of the refugees showed a blood pressure medicine, which was not in the Hungarian register. Moreover, Eörsi said many Ukrainian citizens use vitamins and herbs instead of medicine. Moreover, once he saw a leg ulcer that
had not been treated for 15-20 years.
He said that many refugees were not cooperative, and they did not go to the hospital despite the doctor’s recommendation. They accept antibiotics but reject treatment. For them, hospitals are dangerous places since they have to go there alone, without their families. He highlighted that some of them might carry hepatitis, AIDS or tuberculosis, mfor.hu reported.
The AIDS infection rate in Ukraine, for example, is significantly higher than in Hungary.
Moreover, we can catch tuberculosis regardless of the vaccine, although the chance of that is small. He said that among poorer people, doctors cannot exclude even scabies, lice, and similar health issues.
The vaccination rate of the children is low. Among the adults, 36 pc received at least the first jab of the coronavirus vaccine. That rate is above 70 pc in Hungary.
