Understanding the impact of COVID-19 on Rohingya and Bangladeshis in Malaysia (update#2)


Since May 2020, MMC Asia has been interviewing Rohingya and Bangladeshis in Malaysia to better understand their migration experiences and protection needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. This snapshot builds on themes covered in the first snapshot, produced in June 2020. This includes the impact of COVID-19 on daily life, as well as the consequences of COVID-19 related income loss. In addition, this snapshot focuses on respondents’ access to healthcare, risk perception and awareness of COVID-19, as well as the impact of the pandemic on migration journeys. Information in this snapshot was collected between 1 May and 26 June 2020 in Malaysia. It is based on 119 phone interviews, 79 with Rohingya and 40 with Bangladeshi respondents.
