Yemen, you have a new spike of cholera: already 2.2 million cases in three years, from the beginning of the war
the ROME - the arrival of The rainy season could lead to, in the next few weeks, a new peak exponential of cholera in the republic of Yemen. From the beginning of the year are more than 56 thousand people with hiv, and over 2.2 million by 2017, while in the Country it is increasingly difficult to persuade the population because of a war that has lasted for 5 years and has already made 12 thousand civilian victims and more than 100 thousand in total. It is a Country that is fragmented, entire regions under the control of "cutthroat" of the "islamic state" (IS) that makes you feel its presence, together with other formations of Al-Qa ida.

yet another "proxy war". A very similar picture to the one in syria, where the civil population is involved in a game of repositioning the geopolitical between Saudi Arabia (and block sunni) against Iran. Partta of which the people little know, or if sa can do nothing. The fact is that the population is reduced to the point of exhaustion and this is yet another "proxy war", however, the source of gains unimaginable in the market of weapons, can not own more. Weapons that come in spite of the Un embargo, dodged nimbly from the Usa, Uk, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, with the war, let's face it, they do a lot of business.

The alarm OXFAM present in 13 governorates. Is the alarm launched today by OXFAM, almost five years on from the outbreak of the most serious humanitarian emergency in the world, as reaffirmed by the United Nations, but which now in effect appears to be forgotten by the international community. A crisis in which gi the men and women of OXFAM in the 13 governorates of the Country, including the 5 North most at risk, where the cholera epidemic is concentrated. In 2019, it had already registered the second highest increase of infection by the outbreak of the epidemic: more than 860 thousand suspected cases, with more than a thousand victims, a little less than a million registered in 2017. “While the health system is collapsing, with only half of the facilities in operation throughout the Country because of the bombing and the clashes of the last few years, the number of outbreaks could increase with the arrival of the rainy season in April – said Paolo Pezzati, policy advisor for humanitarian emergencies, Oxfam Italy – it would be yet another blow to a people that has already suffered unspeakable horrors”.

In the north of the Country, the epidemic continues to spread . After you have registered in 2017, the highest number of cases of cholera, the North of Yemen, remains the area most at risk for the almost total lack of sources of clean water, especially in the five governorates of Sana'a, Hajjah, Hudaydah, Taiz and Dhamar. An epidemic then from April 2017 - when it escaped immediately from the control infecting and 360 thousand persons in the first three months – it continues to flourish in the Country, with the number of cases rebounded last year, after a slight decline in 2018.

Lack of food and water. “The people of Yemen once again must face a very hard trial, in the almost total indifference of the rest of the world. – continue Small - The lack of water and food exposes the population, particularly the poorest communities and vulnerable to epidemics such as this. 10 million people are on the brink of starvation, more than 17 do not have access to clean water and sanitation health care.” In the meantime, stocks of medicines and medical supplies are running low, while fluctuations in exchange rates have made squirt to the stars, the price of the fuel, thereby increasing the cost of transport of clean water with the truck tank, in areas where the population does not have water sources, groundwater at which to draw.

The campaign #SosYemen. From the beginning of the conflict in 2015, Oxfam has brought clean water and sanitation to more than 1 million people in areas of the country most difficult to reach. "With the campaign #SosYemen we want to rescue as many people as possible," reads a note published by the humanitarian organization.
