What's Happening in Yemen?
There has been an ongoing humanitarian crisis in Yemen. The people of Yemen continue to suffer through war, famine, a cholera outbreak, and now, the coronavirus.
Because of the war, more than 80,000 Yemeni people were forced from their homes. In the country, more than 20 million people lack nutritious food for sustenance. This includes two million Yemeni children who endure acute malnutrition. Cholera has infected 110,000+ people. Increased floods in the country puts people at risk for malaria and dengue fever. Finally, the first coronavirus case reached Yemen in April. The virus is infectious and detrimental to health. Studies show COVID in Yemen is more severe and yields a higher death rate than many other countries. Despite the effects of the virus, there is very low testing in Yemen.
