Abstract

October 2018 would be two years since the world came to know of the first case of cholera in war-torn Yemen. Soon after, the outbreak developed at an unprecedented scale and turned into one of the worst historical cholera events in terms of cases reported. By the end of September 2018, more than one million suspected cases had been reported across the country in all but one governorate, where approximately 60% of these cases remained concentrated in roughly half of the 330 districts in the country.
