Future Fate of the Rohingya Refugees Seems Uncertain Since Bangladesh is also Struggling with Support.
Coronavirus Pandemic along with Economic Crisis in the midst of Lock Down seem endless and unending. Not a single country is ready to take responsibility of the Rohingya Community as every country is simply appreciating Bangladesh and showing sympathy.
OIC and other organizations aren’t actively taking any action against Myanmar Military Genocide to take the case to International Court of Justice although Bangladesh requested OIC.
They are Neither Here nor There and Where they are. None is ready to take the Responsibility.Rohingya Community is having a life where there is nothing but imprisonment for future generations.
People are helping the helpless but how long will it be continued? We want a permanent solution! Said a Rohingya Leader: Abul Kalam from Kutupalong Refugee Camp, Ukhiya. All other people around him agreed with him all around. They said that we have the same Public Opinion.
Arakan Army is on Clenching Mission Against Rohingya Community Again.
There is a confirmation from Reutars that the Myanmar Army is on a mission to make the remote villages empty.
The people who were living on those Rakhayn villages were ordered to leave the house or they would be killed.
The autocratic rule of the army and their ruthless attitude made people afraid. There are many people fleeing from the places and trying to reach safe zones by having dangerous sea journey too.
Recently, there were some children and women being murdered by them who refused to leave and unknown number of villagers in remote Rakhayn were injured.
The army kept on their threats and torture in order to throw the helpless people out of the country and they were doing this intentionally.
If the journalist and Media cant reach there, they will hide more than anything. Already, nobody is allowed to enter the mentioned areas.
Myanmar is breaking all the rules and regulations and their military is cruel and ruthless as they simply don’t want to show respect to international Justice.
It is high time the whole world stood against the torture and cruelty.

Most of the Rohingya Refugees including women and children don’t have any information about Coronavirus. Meet The Press Coordinator and Media Wings confirm the news after having conversation with the Press.
There was data collection program on May 2020 where it was discovered that many women and children don’t have any idea about Coronavirus.Many of them have worng concept of the virus.
Some of them cant tell anything about the virus. The maintenance of the health issues are also getting dangerously affected due to not knowing what to do.It is high time NGO bureau took effective steps to make the unconscious people aware about it as soon as possible by means of awareness program.
Staff Reporter met the conference room and got to know about it. There is another plan taken by the government in order to control the affected rate of coronavirus and in future,
There are many organizations working for the Rohingya Refugees in Coxbazar for almost three years since 2017. IOM, UNDP,WFP,UNHCR, BRAC, MUKTI, MSF etc are working day and night for the refugees.
Coronavirus positive cases were not found earlier in the NGO staffs. But according to report of the local news agencies there are 169 cases of NGO staffs from various NGOs who are Corona Positive.
Water, sanitation and food programs are ongoing in the camps. On the otherhand, Coxbazar is already a red zone since there are 1925 corona cases reported till 19 June.
Refugee Relief and Rehabilitation Commissioner (RRRC) Mahabub Alam Talukder said that almost 800 people are quarantined and doctors, nurses and technicians are ready and serving accordingly.
All restrictions are keeping people in full check along with Coronavirus threat and lock down.
Many small shops are around the camps where people collect services for many things. Recently, SIM services were shut down and internet marketing strategy is also under control as Government officials fear that the posing threat would mean information will leak via mobile and internet services.
People are unable to move anywhere as if life had been in cage.
Recently, government orders were given to control any illegal activities in the Camps as some people made videos on threat towards Bangladesh. Coronavirus cases are increasing too.
It is mentioned that near about 600000 SIMs are active in the Rohingya Refugees Camps from various operators.
Most of the people around the camps and outside the camps want internet connection.
Corona situation is getting more dangerous day by day. Two more Rohingya Community members died in Coronavirus Pandemic on 8 June. Both the Refugees were male. One of them is fifty eight years old and he used to live in Camp 10.
Another Rohingya Refugee was seventy years old who lived in Camp 7. Including these two Rohingya Refugees, now the total death number increases up to three and there are around fifty Coronavirus positive patients in the camps so far.
Additional RRRC Shamshudoja informed our correspondence that both of the patients were Coronavirus positive before death. Another person was confirmed on last 8 June.
Government has separated Three Different Zones for whole Bangladesh. Many people dont know what is red, yellow or green zone. Actually, it is a plan by the government to make people stay safe from danger zones. But Coxbazar Central area has been separated in two zones two parts of it were green although other ten parts are in red zone.
Surprisingly, people dont follow any rules or regulations right after the relaxation. Rohingya Camps are not safe either and Kutupalong is certainly in the red zone.
People from different parts of Bangladesh work in the Rohingya Refugees camps which is why noone is safe now. Already, Thursday and Friday are the two days while Coxbazar medical Corona Lab has stopped testing due to some technical issues. In the meantime, Corona Virus may be increasing more severely.
Our staff journalist, Rashed has attended a press meeting and informed us that there is a possibility of severe lock down as the situation is deteriorating day by day. Rohingya Camp corona patients are in Isolation centers of different NGOs.
The situation is no way near improvement as people in all areas of Coxbazar are callous to maintain safety issue for Coronavirus. Death rate is also increasing day by day. According to the Coxbazar Medical College report,Ukhiya 108, Teknaf 36, Coxbazar 321 and Rohingya Refugees camp 39 Corona Positive patients are found and including total 18 death so far.
The tough days are still upcoming because of the failure to follow the instructions and when it will end nobody knows.
There is heavy rain in Cox bazaar as Sea at Bay of Bengal seems very chaotic and weather forecast department is declaring more rain as there is Signal given to all sea ports of Bangladesh along with the soft signal number THREE to Cox bazaar .
So, life is getting affected by the rain around
as Terrible Muddy, Soggy and Floody Condition Within two days of the rains starting, humanitarian agencies reported some many incidents, including landslides, water logging get common view.
The risks remains huge, given the vast size and nature of the congested, makeshift camps. The hilly terrain is now largely bare of vegetation and the rains have made the soil extremely unstable, increasing the risk of large scale flooding and landslides.

Various Natural Calamities Can Damage the Refugees in the Camps:like Cyclone “”Amphan”:
Staff Reporter -JDM
Danger Signal number Six is given to Coxbazar so far but as the cyclone is approaching, it will be updating soon.
There are a lot of problems in the Rohingya Refugees Camps. Still, the most Alarming condition is that people are unaware of the dangers of land slides or hill slides. We have to be very cordial to secure the helpless people.
Flood, Cyclone, Landslides, Heavy Rain, Extremely Hot Weather and Heavy Wind are also the enemies of the Refugees living in the Camps.
Cyclone Amphan may have a devastating affect in Coxbazar if correct measures have not been taken to save the vulnerable people.
The situation is getting worse and Amphan is supposed to affect Chittagong as weather department reports.
Maritime ports of Chittagong, Cox’s bazar, Mongla and Payra advised to keep hoisted Danger signal Six.
The severe cyclonic storm “Amphan” over the southeast bay and adjoining southwest bay has moved slightly northwards and intensified into a very severe cyclonic storm over the same area.
According to the latest bulletin of Bangladesh Meteorological Department (BMD), Amphan came closer to Bangladesh coast by Sunday night.
The people staying close to down hill are not safe because there are many incidents where it is proved lethal. Many homeless local people in Coxbazar got buried all of a sudden in recent years.
