The potential impact of COVID-19 in refugee camps in Bangladesh and and beyond: A modeling study

Newly published peer-reviewed modelling by researchers based at John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health in the USA concludes that as many as 1 in 200 Rohingyas living in the refugee camps in Southern Bangladesh could die from the Covid-19 virus without effective interventions involving vaccination, quarantining or behaviour change.

The study, published on June 16th found that, depending upon whether there was low, medium or high transmission of the virus, between 2,130 and 2,880 refugees could die within the Kutupalong-Balukhali Expansion Site which houses nearly 600,000 Rohingyas in 23 congested settlements.
