Thousands of Rohingya refugees likely to die from coronavirus, new report warns

A large-scale outbreak of the coronavirus in densely packed Rohingya refugee camps in Bangladesh is "highly likely" and would leads to thousands of deaths, an alarming new study has predicted. 

The report by the Baltimore-based Johns Hopkins Centre for Humanitarian Health urges governments to prepare for the worst possible scenario after scientific modelling shows estimated infections would range from 119-504  in the first 30 days after an initial case, and between 424,798 and 543,647 in 12 months.
