Yemen 'worst Cholera outbreak in the world'
Cairo - Mena

The ongoing cholera crisis in Yemen is one of the worst outbreaks in the world and is expected to get far worse, with the World Health Organization warning that the rainy season will increase the pace of transmission, the Washington Times reported on Friday. 
Tens of millions of Yemenis lack access to clean water, sanitation and basic health care, as three years of civil war have decimated the country and shows no sign of resolution, it added.
The World Health Organization has recorded 368,207 suspected cases of cholera and 1,828 deaths since April 27. Every day, nearly 5,000 Yemenis suffer from symptoms of acute watery diarrhea and cholera.
The young and the elderly are the most affected by the outbreak, with children under 15 years old making up 41 percent of all suspected cases, and one-third of all deaths from cholera are people over the age 60, the WHO said.
Cholera is an infectious and fatal bacterial disease contracted from drinking contaminated water. It causes severe diarrhea and vomiting, resulting in serious dehydration. Source: Mena
