CARE Bangladesh has set up a 40-bed isolation centre at Rohingya Camp 4 Extension in Cox’s Bazar to treat and support the Rohingya people, who have mild to severe symptoms of Covid-19.

The center is well-equipped with separate dormitories, washrooms and bathing spaces for male and female patients where physicians, ambulance, medicines, oxygen support, and corona sample collection services are available round the clock. It is powered by electricity from solar panels.

The center is also planning to provide three meals a day for all patients. People with mild Covid-19 symptoms will be referred to the center from the various health facilities across the camps.

CARE Bangladesh will monitor suspected and mild Covid-19 cases in the isolation center while moderate and severe cases will be referred to advanced medical facilities for treatment. 

While speaking at the opening ceremony of the centre on Sunday as the chief guest, Refugee Relief and Repatriation Commissioner (RRRC) Shah Rezwan Hayat expressed his satisfaction and thanked CARE Bangladesh for establishing such a center, which is complete with gender-sensitive features, within such a short time.
