SANA’A, YEMEN (6:20 P.M.) – At least 200 cases of cholera have been reported in the Yemeni capital of Sana’a recently, local hospitals confirmed on Friday.

A joint statement released by hospitals in Sana’a revealed that 218 people have been affected by cholera, including 3 people who were killed by this disease.

The medical sources inside the province of Ibb in central Yemen, also confirmed to the Arabic language news site “Ababil Net” that the cholera epidemic has struck the region after the discovery of many cases.

The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) also confirmed the reports last April about the spread of cholera in Yemen.
