War-torn Yemen gears up for coronavirus battle

A rush to make face masks to prepare for coronavirus in a country where healthcare system has been ravaged by war.

    In Yemen's capital Sanaa, a factory has opened to make medical masks in a bid to prepare for the spread of the coronavirus.

    The country has not yet been hit, but with a healthcare system that has been decimated by years of war, people are not taking any chances.
