Summary: Experts seem to agree, if you are not a health care worker, do not buy N95 masks, long considered the best of protective masks. They will not help you much, and they are in extremely short supply for the people who need them most, the health care workers trying to protect themselves from COVID-19 while saving lives. However, there is still debate over whether everyone should wear some kind of face covering when they leave their homes. Staying home and limiting contact with groups of people remain the best ways to stop the spread of the new coronavirus. But some experts suggest that some kind of face covering may help too -- not by protecting the person who wears from infection, but by protecting others from the person who wears too. There is growing evidence that people can spread the disease without having signs of sickness themselves. Two studies have linked 6 percent to 13 percent of infections to people who were not showing any signs of infections themselves.

Topic: How this Ramadan is going on in the camp during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Translation Summary: Muslims around the world celebrate Ramadan with prayer and special foods. But this time, due to Covid 19 pandemic, Ramadan is bit different than other times. Some countries have restricted praying in mosques and lockdown areas. What is going on in Bangladesh Refugee camp? Abdur Rashid 27 years old, a resident of kutupalong Rohingya camp 3 and came to Bangladesh during 2017. He already witnessed Ramadan twice before this time. He said,” Government announced lockdown in the camp therefore we can’t move freely. People only go outside when it is very necessary. But people can’t avoid going to buy things from bazaar. Now Police are strictly monitoring if there are any gatherings in bazaar. Sometimes people face difficulties going to bazaar due to fear of police. But people are still going to bazaar. There is no change seen in the mosques. He said, many people are still going to pray and the mosques are full of people especially in Ramadan. No authorities yet told us anything regarding that. Besides during the month of Ramadan ‘Iftaar’, breaking the fast with varieties of food is a tradition amongst Muslims. Rohingyas are also trying to arrange food based on how much they can afford. Last year we got some Ramadan donations from other countries but this year we haven’t got any.
