Malaysian Government turned away the boats of hundreds of Rohingya refugees who came to take refuge in Malaysia. It was done to avoid from CoronaVirus Pandemic spread in Malaysia, said the Malaysian administration.
After this decision, refugees have to go back. People were forced to drink sea waters to save their lives; dozens of them were dead on the sea in response to lack of food necessities.
The United States took notice after a petition was sent to the National Community to save hundreds of lives stranded in boats.
It is believed that hundreds of more people are still stuck at sea.
