“There is no budget … there is a severe shortage of everything;” said Sanaa general coordinator for the Electronic Disease and Warning System. Adeeb al-Rassabi also emphasized the role of Saudi Arabia and its allies in deterioration of the condition in Yemen stressing on the fact that Cholera would have been controlled if the force of war had not intervened.
Saudi Arabia is, nevertheless, supported by the United States in its invasion against Yemen. The international humanitarian organizations would be able to put political pressure on Saudi Arabia to set back in Yemen if the United States had not supported the attacks.
Besides, the US collaborated with the Saudis in assaulting Yemen by giving military aides and deploying drones to the country. Reports also indicate that the decision to siege the country was primarily made by Washington using Saudi air force to operate it.
The cholera in Yemen has had thousands of victims with hundreds of thousands infected so far. It is described as the world’s greatest Cholera outbreak registered in history. Analysts and reports confirm that the infection is still in growing condition meaning far more people will be killed by the malady.
While most infected could be treated with a simple rehydration or IV rehydration, the shortage of facilities and drugs as well as extensive pollution of water sources across the country made it impossible for the officials to get it under control.
Using its media empire, the United States, Saudi complicit in Yemen war, has put the catastrophe in blackout across the world. The silence of international society is either caused by the domination of the US or its cover-up of the news through besiege and prevention of media involvement.
