As of 3 March 2018, a total of 6 025 suspected cases of diphtheria have been reported.
There is a decline in the reported numbers of acute jaundice syndrome in week 9 relative to the previous weeks.
• The third round of the diphtheria vaccination campaign will run from 10 to 25 March 2018. Meanwhile, a declining trend is noted in Acute Jaundice Syndrome, with 87 cases reported in past week compared to 169 cases in the previous week. The total number of cases is now 921. For the first time since the crisis began, routine immunization has started in 19 fixed health posts.
Since 25 August 2017, 688 000 Rohingya refugees escaping violence in Myanmar have sought protection in Cox’s Bazar district, Bangladesh, increasing the area’s refugee population to more than 900 300. Some 91 percent live in highly congested makeshift settlements and camps.
UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, is concerned about the safety of a group of vulnerable Rohingya women, men, and children from Myanmar, who have been living in a so-called “no man’s land” near the border between Myanmar and Bangladesh since the end of August 2017. UNHCR is closely following the developments after they were reportedly ordered to vacate the area by the Myanmar authorities.
