An outbreak of Cholera is occurring in Yemen. Twenty five people have died in the last week alone. Cholera is a disease usually contracted through contaminated drinking water.
This disease causes diarrhea, which left untreated can lead to death. Drinkable water is becoming more of a problem in Yemen, in recent years. Two years of war in Yemen is the root cause.
Twenty seven thousand cases of Cholera have been reported in past few years. One hundred thirty deaths have occurred. Severe cases of Cholera can kill you within hours if not treated properly.
Water pumping stations have not been functioning properly this year in Yemen. This country is also suffering electricity problems.
