Migrants and forcibly displaced people are one of the worst affected sections in the COVID-19 pandemic. More or less every country has felt it to be a challenging task to look after the health of migrants in a similar way as they are supposed to do so for their own citizens. Migrants need to be given special attention when it comes to testing and treatment because they could be both victims and potential sources of this SARS COV-2 virus. In this article, some important issues related to migrants’ health in this pandemic have been briefly addressed.
