Yemen Cholera Epidemic Expected To Hit 1M Cases By Year End, Save The Children Warns

The Guardian: Yemen’s cholera outbreak now the worst in history as millionth case looms
“…The World Health Organization has reported more than 815,000 suspected cases of the disease in Yemen and 2,156 deaths. About 4,000 suspected cases are being reported daily, more than half of which are among children under 18. Children under five account for a quarter of all cases. … Save the Children has warned that, at the current rate of infection, the number of cases will reach seven figures before the turn of the year, 60 percent of which will be among children…” (Lyons, 10/12).
