Yemen has long been one of the poorest countries in the Middle East.
In March 2015, a long-running political crisis escalated into violence, with devastating consequences for people who live in Yemen.
And while the sides in the conflict continue to vie for control, Yemen’s people are going hungry.
Not enough food is getting into the country, the sanitation system has been decimated, and hospitals have been destroyed.
It's now being called one of the worst humanitarian disasters of our time.
The impact of coronavirus on Yemen will be devastating after five years of civil war and half of the country's health facilities destroyed in the conflict. Yemen has just over 500 confirmed cases of the virus, but there are reports of deaths from COVID-19 symptoms from around the country and case fatality is alarmingly high.
