SPECIAL REPORT: The Saudi-led coalition supported by the United States has sparked an outbreak of disease and epidemics in #Yemen in a manner not seen since World War II. @AlhouthiAhmed #TheForgottenWar
A new wave of epidemic diseases like dengue fever and malaria have spiraled out of control in #Yemen. Yemeni activist Aseel Sweid told @MintPressNews how a young boy, Abdulkarim al-Ma’amari, “died of dengue fever after it spread with alarming speed in Taiz."
In addition to dengue and H1N1, #Yemen has the fastest-growing cholera outbreak ever recorded; and rabies, diphtheria, and measles have now emerged in the country, killing countless people all while Yemen is in the midst of the world’s worst famine.
Yemen’s Sana’a-based Minister of Health said one million patients have confirmed or suspected cases of malaria and there are currently 36,000 confirmed cases of dengue fever with at least dozens of those cases proving fatal. The MOH has announced a state of emergency. #Yemen
The World Health Organization (WHO) has received more than 78,000 disease reports in #Yemen thru its surveillance sites since the beginning of 2019. Yemeni children are hit the hardest. 100,00 people die every year as a result of the diseases and epidemics, most of them children.
More Yemeni civilians now die from epidemics and disease than airstrikes. 86% of children under five suffer from some sort of anemia, 46% of children suffer from stunted growth and 80,000 children have been inflicted with mental disorders due to the trauma of war. #Yemen
What’s happening in #Yemen may not be literal biological warfare, but it is certainly biological warfare by other means. mintpressnews.com/saudi-led-coal…
