Rise in deaths with COVID-like symptoms in south Yemen: Aid group

Poor testing facilities means COVID-19 cases could be much higher in south where ceasefire failed to take hold.

The charity Save the Children says 385 patients showing coronavirus-like symptoms have died in the past week in the southern port city of Aden alone, even as Yemen officially reports a mere 13 deaths from COVID-19.

The UN envoy to Yemen says a perfect storm of cholera, malaria and the coronavirus poses a grave risk to the population.
