Pestilence

WHO: More than 1,300 now dead in Yemen's cholera epidemic - UPI.com
UPI reports: "The World Health Organization has announced the cholera outbreak in Yemen has now killed more than 1,300 people. The U.N. agency tweeted from its Yemeni Twitter account Saturday that the epidemic has claimed 1,310 associated deaths -- from a total of more than 200,000 suspected cases. The number of suspected cholera cases has roughly doubled since early June. [...] Part of that treatment, Relano said, has consisted of going door-to-door to teach families safe hygiene practices and chlorinate water tanks."

Comment: So sad to see so many people die of a preventable disease.
