Earth is fighting to stay alive. Mass dieoffs, triggered by anthropogenic assault and fallout of planetary defense systems offsetting the impact, could begin anytime!

Children Account for Half of All Suspected Cholera Cases in Yemen

Posted by feww on June 13, 2017

Yemen records 124,000 cases of cholera, half are children  –Unicef

“Children continue to bear the brunt of the war in Yemen. Many who have become ill or have died from cholera were suffering from malnutrition. At least 923 people have died from the disease since late April. Children account for one quarter of the deaths.

“The cholera outbreak is overwhelming what remains of Yemen’s conflict-battered health system.”

“With no end in sight to the conflict, the cholera outbreak – and potentially other disease will continue to stalk the lives of children.”
