Cholera epidemic in Yemen reaches 600,000

Cholera outbreak in Yemen has already infected 612,703 people killing 2,048 since the time of its beginning in Yemen in April 2017. The data given on Tuesday, 5th September 2017 by the health ministry in Yemen and the World Health Organization showed that certain districts of the country are still reporting strident rise in more new cases. The total spread of Cholera outbreak in the country has reduced in the past couple of months as the regular number of patients suspected with cholera daily has decreased to roughly 3,000 every day in recent days.

Cholera epidemic has proved to be the most devastating and explosive outbreak on record as far as its rapid spread is concerned. It has confounded the expectations of several people staying in Yemen. Soon after its outburst in Yemen, the World Health Organization noticed a worst-case scenario when 300, 000 cases of Cholera were reported within six months. On approaching towards the end of June, the World Health Organization hoped that 218,000 cholera cases could be the midway mark. Later by July end, the spread of the epidemic was said to have peaked drastically after it infected approximately 400,000 people in Yemen.

Ideally, epidemics decline as rapidly as they rise. Based on this assumption, the peak of this virus- which normally spread due to consumption of contaminated water and food- needs to be approximately half the final over-all caseload. In case of cholera outburst in Yemen, the decline has been very bumpy. The number of fresh cases of cholera have rose considerably in two out of the four weeks in the past. Tarik Jasarevic, spokesman from the World Health Organization state that some areas that are considered the most affected areas, like the governorates of Amran and Hajjah and Sanaa City, have seen noticeable reduction in the number of fresh cases of cholera.
