Scabies cases keep popping up in Swiss asylum centers.

Scabies alarm in the Swiss asylum centers! According to Samuel Wyss, spokesman for the State Secretariat for Migration (SEM), cases of the skin disease are currently occurring in many of the approximately 20 federal asylum centers. This is reported by “SRF”.

In Switzerland, the disease was long considered defeated. Because scabies is not notifiable, there are no exact numbers. According to Wyss, however, it is “a problem that occurs regularly in asylum accommodation”. The SEM spokesman assumes that the current cases have a connection with the many applications from unaccompanied minors seeking asylum. These would often become infected with the skin disease on the long flight to the refugee camps.
