Many Rohingya patients in Maung Daw north and south are suffering from various harmful diseases. Some of them died because of the movement restriction (imposed for only Rohingyas), poverty and fear of the medical staffs. All the medical staffs in Maung Daw general hospital are Rakhines who relate Rohingyas rudely and charges large amount of money.
