Sometimes 20, Sometimes 30 - It’s normal for refugees to live in small flats with up to 30 people, who may all be replaced the next week. For survival, they live wherever job opportunities take them - Photograph: UNHCR

After it was reported that a group of Rohingya refugees may have been part of the Tabligh event at the mosque in Seri Petaling, which caused a spike in Covid-19 cases, BFM explores whether vulnerable communities such as refugees and migrant workers are receiving proper care in Malaysia.

BFM speaks with Lilianne Fan, co-founder and international director of Geutanyoe Foundation and chairperson of the Rohingya Working Group at the Asia Pacific Refugee Rights Network, as well as Nilim Baruah, regional migration specialist at the International Labour Organization for Asia and the Pacific.
