Here’s something I want to share about what I read today. It’s about Yemen getting its first COVID-19 vaccines. As we all know, Yemen is suffering from the worst humanitarian crisis. And now, they are also being hit by the virus. COVAX said that the 360,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s vaccine arrived by plane at Aden, part of a consignment from the global COVAX vaccine-sharing scheme expected to total 1.9 million doses this year. Yemen’s health system has been battered by war, economic collapse and, recently, a shortfall in humanitarian aid funding. The war has restricted COVID-19 testing and reporting. The Houthi movement that is battling a pro-government coalition, and controls most large urban centres, has provided no figures since last May, but numbers of confirmed cases have risen rapidly since mid-February.
