Summary: The governmental authorities are at the final stage of preparations to relocate the first official batch of Rohingyas from overcrowded camps in Cox’s Bazar to Bhashan Char. Although no official date has been declared yet, sources involved in the process said the Rohingyas were set to arrive at the remote island on December 4, if the weather remained calm. The batch will include around 2,500 Rohingyas who have voluntarily agreed to relocate to the island after considering the facilities and amenities available there, the sources added. Rohingya Refugee Repatriation Commission (RRRC) Commissioner Shah Rezwan Hayat told Dhaka Tribune that a small group of Rohingyas will be relocated in the first phase and the process would continue over time.
He declined to provide a specific date for the relocation, saying it had not been fixed yet.

Rohingya children are caught with cold and cough and the symptoms are mostly similar to the symptoms of COVID-19 pandemic. So, when the Rohingyas go for treatment to NGO/Agency clinics/primary health care are suspected as COVID-19 affected and admit them there and that’s why the general Rohingya are frightened of COVID-19 and request for winter supplies during this cold season so that they are not affected. .
