MSF continues to work together with the Bangladeshi authorities, WHO and other healthcare organisations to limit the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
In the dedicated isolation wards built in our facilities in Cox’s Bazar, MSF is now treating a number of patients who are COVID-19 positive, as well as monitoring others with suspected COVID-19,. We have established a total capacity of 300 beds for our response so far.
In the outpatient areas in our health clinics we have also set up specific waiting areas for patients showing symptoms of COVID-19.
Meanwhile, our teams are continuing health promotion and our regular medical activities remain ongoing.
