When all the Diploma and Gold Medals from Arabs on the leader, cannot help ordinary Ethiopians

Recommended Posts

Saudi Arabia is gathering and shipping back Ethiopians by the thousands.

Ethiopia does not have the capacity to quarantine these many people on daily or weekly arrivals.

Abiy friendship and diplomas from Saudi and UAE has not helped a bit. Saudis are not even responding to begging from Ethiopian authorities to slow the deportations.

UN warns Saudi deportation of Ethiopian migrants to fuel coronavirus spread

he United Nations says Saudi Arabia’s recent deportation of thousands of Ethiopian migrants will risk the spread of the new coronavirus, urging Riyadh to suspend the practice for the time being.

The UN's International Organization for Migration (IOM) said on Monday that Saudi Arabia has so far deported 2,870 Ethiopian migrants to Addis Ababa since the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

An aid worker familiar with the deportations, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said that "about 3,000" Ethiopian migrants have arrived from Saudi Arabia in the past 10 days.

"The expulsion and deportation of Ethiopian irregular migrants while their country's COVID-19 response is under-prepared puts them in harm's way," said Catherine Sozi, the UN humanitarian coordinator for Ethiopia.
