Rohingya camps in Bangladesh under 'complete lockdown'

Apr 09, 2020 20:43 IST

Bangladesh has imposed a complete lockdown in Cox's Bazar district -- home to over a million Rohingya refugees from neighbouring Myanmar -- to halt the spread of coronavirus, officials said Thursday. Experts have warned that the disease could spread quickly through the cramped, sewage-soaked alleys where the persecuted Muslim minority are housed in canvas and bamboo shacks. No cases have been confirmed in the camps so far. Bangladesh has reported 200 coronavirus cases nationwide in the last five days, including 20 deaths.
