The humanitarian crisis in Yemen is catastrophic. COVID’s spread in Yemen is evident, with cases already reported in Hadramount, Aden, and Sana’a; many experts believe the actual numbers are far higher than what’s been reported in the press. After five years of US military support for the Saudi led war on Yemen, Yemenis are especially vulnerable to this outbreak. As many as 80% of Yemenis, the proportion in need of humanitarian assistance and protection, are currently living with immune systems weakened by hunger and the spread of cholera and other diseases. If infected, they will have access to only half the country’s health care facilities – the other 50% having been destroyed or closed because of the conflict.
