Temporary healthcare centers, where the oral cholera vaccine provided by the WHO is administered, are seen marked with yellow flags in the Jamtoli refugee camp in Cox’s Bazar, October 10, 2017. The cholera vaccination campaign in Bangladesh, the second largest in history, will be crucial to containing any outbreak, said Dr N. Paranietharan, the WHO’s representative in Bangladesh. More than 1,000 people will fan out across the sprawling camps on the southern tip of Bangladesh that are home to more than 519,000 Rohingya Muslims.
