On Tuesday, Oct. 10, medical teams from the health ministry, supported by UNICEF and WHO, started a massive cholera immunization drive in the camps that accommodate the new arrivals as well as many of the hundreds of thousands of Rohingya who fled to Bangladesh during earlier spasms of violence in Myanmar, racing against time to prevent outbreaks of infectious diseases.
