Source: US News & World Report

"Cholera has killed at least 115 people in the Yemeni capital Sanaa, the local Saba news agency said, after authorities on Sunday declared a state of emergency over the outbreak and called for international help to avert disaster. Sanaa is controlled by the armed Houthi movement, which is [supposedly] aligned with Iran and fighting a Western-backed, Saudi-led [invasion]. More than 10,000 people have been killed and millions displaced in more than two years of war, which has also destroyed much of the country's infrastructure. … 8,595 suspected cholera cases were recorded in Sanaa and other Yemeni provinces between April 27 and May 13, while laboratory confirmed cases were 213."
