TEHRAN (IQNA) – The number of people who have died in Yemen after contracting the new coronavirus has reached 500, according to a Reuters tally, although aid organizations say the death toll is probably much higher.


About 80 percent of the population rely on humanitarian assistance in Yemen after years of Saud-led aggression.  

The United Nations says the virus is circulating rapidly and undetected throughout the country and infections and deaths are probably much higher.

According to World Health Organization data, there have been 1,738 COVID-19 infections, with 500 deaths.

Since 2015, Yemen has been suffering from a Saudi-led war. Since then، over 100،000 people have been killed، according to the US-based Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project (ACLED).
