As of July 2nd: 262,650 suspected cases of cholera, 1,587. The outbreak is affecting all of Yemen’s governorates except for Socotra and is mostly effecting the four governorates of Amanat Al Asimah, Al Hudaydah, Hajjah, and Amran.

From Voice of America:

Dealing with cholera is pulling away resources and food meant to go to battling famine, warned the U.N. humanitarian chief in Yemen, Jamie McGoldrick.

Yemen long struggled with malnutrition. But the coalition embargo and the fighting have wrecked distribution systems and tipped the country into near famine.
