On COVID vaccinations for refugees, will the world live up to its promises?

Towards the end of May, Ali Jinnah Hussin, 20, noticed that a lot of people in the Balukhali Rohingya refugee camp in Bangladesh where he has been living since 2017 were starting to fall sick.

“Most of the people… are getting the symptoms of COVID-19,” Hussin told The New Humanitarian by phone. “In the area where I am living, there are 100 other families. In one of them, 75 or 85 of the family [members] were getting sick, flu, cough.”
