As per the May 2020 population count, the population stands at 111,766 individuals (15,959 households) in 12,054 inhabited shelters (on average 9 individuals per shelter). According to indicative  Displacement Site Flow Monitoring findings, the number of new arrivals per month  has been decreasing since December 2019. Entry and exit movements from the Bentiu PoC site continue to be characterized by short, medium and long-term movement in similar proportions to the first quarter of 2020. While COVID-19 developments in Greater Unity are expected to impact communities within the state, the current absence of an area lockdown/complete movement restrictions for Bentiu PoC site residents results in regular inflow and outflow mobility between the site and surrounding locations within national curfew hours (median of 12,480  individuals entering and 13, 427 individuals exiting per day in the month of May 2020).
