Yemen's man-made cholera crisis is now the worst outbreak on record
The cholera outbreak in Yemen is set to become the largest epidemic since records began, British charity Oxfam has said. Yemen descended into a full-blown civil war in March 2015, and has been suffering from a cholera epidemic since March of this year. Charities had already warned the crisis is the fasting-growing cholera epidemic in history, and have said the number of cases will soon overtake the total of 754,373 cases recorded in the aftermath of Haiti’s 2010 earthquake. Experts believe it will hit a million by November.
