Women and children sort wool in a fur and wool factory that produce's coats, jackets, hats and other garments for the European and North American markets. More than 350 female and 300 male workers sort wool by tearing pieces of goat's and sheep's wool, which usually contain harmful bacteria, without protective gloves or masks. A lung and chest diseases specialist, at the Herat City Hospital, says workers in fur and wool factories are vulnerable to virulent microbes, which harm the respiratory system and cause chest infections.
