COVID-19 fears for 1 million Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh

A health worker wearing personal protective equipment in the Kutupalong Rohingya refugee camp in Cox's Bazar, Bangladesh, last month. On Thursday, Bangladesh reported the area's first confirmed coronavirus infections.

Woman-led disaster response organisation Action Aid expresses concern for the almost one million refugees in Cox’s Bazar, a refugee settlement in Bangladesh.

Regular climate-related crises and lack of sanitation equipment have added to this fear.

Laura Green spoke to Executive Director of Action Aid Michelle Higelin to better understand the situation.
