Topic of refugees still rarely gets public attention, including students. Conditions in refugee camps that are inadequate for the implementation of physical distancing and limited facilities, such as the limitation of water for sanitation, can increase the potential risk of COVID-19. The government's burden to overcome COVID-19 pandemic in general also impact the assistance for the daily needs of refugees. That situation, causes the rights and health of vulnerable refugees become increasingly vulnerable during pandemic.
