WHO Could Have Responded Sooner To Yemen Cholera Outbreak, Agency’s Emergencies Chief Says

Associated Press: U.N.: More should have been done to fight cholera in Yemen
“The World Health Organization’s emergencies chief says the agency could have acted faster and sent more vaccines to fight a massive, deadly surge of cholera cases in war-battered Yemen this year. Dr. Peter Salama still expressed optimism that ‘we are turning (the) corner’ on the preventable, water-borne disease that has topped 700,000 suspected cases and caused more than 2,000 deaths this year…” (Keaten, 10/4).
