加德满都,2月25日讯:自卡塔尔加快2022年世界杯足球赛的建设以来,在过去的十年里,共有1641名尼泊尔移民在卡塔尔死亡。据英国媒体《卫报》报道,2011年至2020年期间,有6500多名外来务工人员丧生。印度有2711人死亡,是这一时期死亡人数最多的国家。


据报道,约48%的尼泊尔工人的死亡属于“自然死亡”,通常归因于突发性和无法解释的心脏或呼吸衰竭。同样,16%的尼泊尔工人死于交通事故,10%死于工作事故和自杀,9%死于出血和肾衰竭等疾病,1%死于谋杀。还有7%的死亡原因尚不清楚。


在过去的10年里,卡塔尔开始了一项史无前例的建设计划,主要是为2022年世界杯足球赛做准备。据英国《卫报》报道,除了7个新体育场外,数十个重大项目已经完工或正在施工中,包括一个新机场、道路、公共交通系统、酒店和一个将举办世界杯决赛的新城。除尼泊尔和印度外,大多数求职者来自巴基斯坦、孟加拉国和斯里兰卡。在此期间,平均每周有12名移民工人成为职业死亡的受害者。

KATHMANDU, Feb 25: A total of 1,641 Nepali migrant workers died in Qatar in the past one decade since Qatar speeded up the construction work to host the Football World Cup 2022. The Guardian, a UK-based media, has reported that more than 6,500 migrant workers lost their lives during the period from 2011 to 2020. With the death of 2,711, India tops the list of workers who died during this period.  


Around 48 percent deaths of Nepali workers were reported as ‘natural deaths’ often attributed to sudden and unexplained heart or respiratory failure.   Likewise, 16 percent Nepali workers died in road accidents, 10 percent each in workplace accident and suicide, nine percent with diseases like hemorrhage and kidney failures and one percent was murdered. The causes of deaths of seven percent were unknown.   


In the past 10 years, Qatar has embarked on an unprecedented building programme, largely in preparation for the world cup football tournament in 2022. In addition to seven new stadiums, dozens of major projects have been completed or are underway, including a new airport, roads, public transport systems, hotels and a new city, which will host the World Cup final, The Guardian reports. Apart from Nepal and India, most of the job-seekers were from Pakistan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.  On an average, 12 migrant workers every week were the victims of occupational fatalities during the period.
