The cases of cholera in Yemen has exceeded 200,000 and confirms its status as the world’s worst cholera outbreak.

Yemen reports about 5,000 daily cases of cholera, with more than 13,000 people already dead.

A quarter of the deaths recorded are children. The UN has placed blame for the outbreak on all sides in the country’s ongoing conflict.

Yemen is currently war torn and after two years of war between government forces and the rebel Houthi movement, the country is on the brink or starvation and medical aid is scarce.
