The Ministry of Public Health and Population of the National Salvation Government issued at midnight on Thursday a statement on the developments of the Covid-19 pandemic.
In its statement, the ministry said that it follows “the epidemiological situation of the Covid-19 pandemic locally, regionally and globally, as well as the measures taken in different countries of the world with great interest.”

“Many countries of the world have dealt with the infection cases as numbers and statistics, which has negatively affected the psychological and immunity status of societies,” the statement read.
The Ministry confirmed that it, from the first moment of announcing the pandemic, put in place a national emergency plan to confront it, including allocating places for isolation and equipment in the capital Sana’a and the rest of the provinces according to the available capabilities.
“A strategy and vision has been developed that is appropriate to the country’s situation, by benefiting from the experiences of other countries,” the ministry added, referring to “the failure of the United Nations organisations to provide necessary assistance for Yemen.”
