570 suspected cholera cases treated in three weeks in Yemen

Recommended Posts

Doctors Without Borders (MSF) says more than 570 suspected cases of cholera have been treated in Yemen during the past three weeks, some seven months after the outbreak of the infectious disease was declared in the conflict-plagued impoverished Arab country.
"There are fears that the disease could turn into an epidemic. Two years into the war, the healthcare system has collapsed, hospitals are destroyed, and government employees' salaries have not been paid," said GhassanAbouChaar, the spokesperson for the international medical charity, on Sunday.
He added that the MSF had witnessed a marked increase over the past week in suspected cholera cases in five provinces across the country.
Abdelhakim al-Kahlani, Yemen's Ministry of Healthspokesperson, said the bacterial infection had resurfaced the previous week in the impoverished country, with reported cases in 10 provinces.
