245 Reported Deaths

COVID-19 is rapidly spreading throughout Yemen, and the case fatality rate is one of the highest in the world, at close to 25 per cent. The number of cases is likely higher than reported, due comparatively lower testing and reporting rates in Yemen. With only 50 per cent of health facilities fully functional across the country, the COVID-19 outbreak is already overwhelming the health care system. The impact, especially on the displaced community who already face challenges with accessing health services, is expected to severe.
