The number of suspected cases of cholera in Yemen is close to reaching half a million.
The United Nations’ World Health Organization says around 485-thousand cases have been reported in 298 districts since late April 20-17. The disease has also led to the deaths of nearly two-thousand people. Yemen is suffering from a number of humanitarian disasters including famine, while the country’s health system has virtually collapsed. Saudi Arabia, which waged a war on its neighbor in March 20-15, has come under criticism from aid groups for its crippling blockade on Yemen.
