A few days ago Anonymous hacker group published a number of Turkish hospitals' databases. The stolen DBs are reported to contain patients' personal data and their case histories.

A thorough study of some published documents (ovh.to/6bRcXP5) revealed horrifying facts that should make us, Europeans, mind the mortal danger we may face in the near future.

Let us have a closer look at a database fragment of a Turkish hospital located not far away from the Turkish-Greek border. First of all, it's worth learning the way the database is structured. For illustration purposes, HIV tests are highlighted with red and VDRL ones with yellow. The first number in each line stands for the database part containing information about patients' tests.

To illustrate the way it goes let's take the syphilis tests, for instance, record 365; the next step is to find medical cards of patients with positive test results ("POZITIF"). Card numbers will provide full information about a person. Therefore, a medical card numbered 2013362145 belongs to Mr. Hasan Karakos, a VDRL-positive patient, born in 1986. Apart from it, there are his ID-card number and mobile phone available.

The data published by the hackers testify to the fact that syphilis as well as HIV and AIDS incidence in Turkey has zoomed up in the last six months. The in-country sanitary and epidemiological situation keeps deteriorating amid a huge refugee's inflow from unstable regions with ruined national health services and back morals undermined by long-running wars.

It is quite evident that outbreaks of the diseases mentioned should fall on the European part of Turkey, according to the AIDS and HIV statistics presented by the hackers. The average Turkish HIV prevalence is less than 0,009% of population. Focusing on the city of Kırklareli close to the Greek border, we find 0,129% of positive test patients registered in local hospitals, where Anonymous have gained access. The rate in the border town of Edirne is the similarly high - 0,104%.

The following map depicts the main routes to be followed by Iraqi and Syrian refugees on their way to EU through Turkey. A Red zone is mainly significant for HIV and AIDS outbreaks and is home for the cities of Kırklareli and Edirne mentioned above.

A great deal of refugees has been crowding at the border between Greece and Bulgaria since they are craving to come into Europe safely by land.
