“Yemen is facing a massive resurgence of cholera in what was already one of the world’s worst outbreaks, with more than 137,000 suspected cases and almost 300 deaths reported in the first three months of this year. With well over 2,000 suspected cases being recorded every day — a doubling since the beginning of the year — aid agencies fear they could be facing a major new health crisis. … The latest surge in cholera cases threatens to further complicate the already dire humanitarian situation…” (Beaumont, 4/17).
