UK: Saudi-led coalition has contributed to a situation where cholera can prosper in Yemen

A study by academics at London’s Queen Mary University has found that those who contract cholera in Yemen are more likely to die if they live in regions controlled by Houthi opposition forces. The study, which was published in the Lancet Global Health under the title “the political determinants of the cholera outbreak in Yemen,” and co-authored by academics Jonathan Kennedy, Andrew Harmer and... Еще David McCoy, found that “someone living in rebel controlled areas is 70 percent more likely to contract cholera and 50 percent more likely to die from cholera,» said Jonathan Kennedy from London on Tuesday. Kennedy said that the destruction of civilian infrastructure by the anti-Houthi Saudi-led coalition, together with the naval and air blockade have “contributed to a situation where cholera can prosper.”
