Yemen Cholera Cases Could Hit 300,000 Within Six Months-WHO

GENEVA — Yemen could have as many as 300,000 cases of cholera within six months, the World Health Organization representative in the country, Nevio Zagaria, told reporters in Geneva by phone on Friday.

“We need to expect something that could go up to 200,000-250,000 cases over the next six months, in addition to the 50,000 cases that have already occurred,” he said.

“You can understand that with this number the price that we will pay in terms of lives will be extremely, extremely high.”
