Occupancy in intensive care units in quarantine centers has reached maximum capacity in Yemen because of a sharp increase in the number of coronavirus cases in recent days.

There is a shortage of intensive care equipment and oxygen tubes required to treat COVID-19 patients.

Meanwhile, authorities urge Yemenis to comply with COVID-19 measures, wear masks and stay away from crowded places.

Yemen needs massive support in its struggle against the virus and other epidemic diseases.

The overall virus tally in Yemen has reached 3,126 confirmed cases, including 723 fatalities, while the number of recoveries stands at 520, according to the National Committee for the Fight Against the Coronavirus.

The Saudi-led war on Yemen has also destroyed, damaged, and shut down the country’s infrastructure, including a large number of hospitals and clinics.

The Yemeni population has been subjected to large-scale hunger and diseases aggravated by the naval blockade imposed on the country by the coalition of aggressors.

The US and a number of European countries are major suppliers of weapons to the Saudi-led coalition.
