Over 6,500 dead during construction work for the 2022 World Cup


Breathtaking stadiums, new roads and airports, expensive hotels: there is a lot of construction going on for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar. But the living conditions for the guest workers are unworthy. The death toll is shockingly high.

More than 6,500 guest workers died as part of the preparations for the 2022 World Cup in Qatar from 2010 to 2020. The “Guardian” reports this after calculating various data. Among other things, the Pakistani embassy in Qatar alone recorded 824 deaths from their country during this period.

There is a lack of hygiene, cleanliness and safety, especially in the narrow living spaces. Eight people in a few square meters are everyday life in Qatar. The living conditions are unworthy. Again and again there are protests of the workers (more information is available here).

Whether illness from bacterial infections or electric shocks from open cables coming into contact with water, there are several dangers to local people that resulted in the death of many of their former colleagues. That came again and again Accidents on the construction sites in which workers were killed.

The figures calculated by the “Guardian” are, according to their own information, still too low to reflect reality. Although they contain data from India, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Nepal and Sri Lanka, data from Kenya or the Philippines are completely missing.
