20 new COVID-19 cases in southern Yemen, official total  419

The Saudi-Sponsored government reports on Wednesday, 20 new confirmed cases of coronavirus in southern provinces of Yemen.

The total number of COVID-19 cases in Yemen’s internationally recognized government-controlled provinces increased to 419 on Wednesday, as  these 20 new cases were confirmed.

The Health Ministry said in a brief statement that during the past 24 hours, 20 cases of COVID-19 were detected in a number of provinces under the control of Aden government.

The ministry said that the number of recoveries in the government-controlled areas increased to 17 since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus on April 10.

Also, the government announced that the death toll from the deadly respiratory disease climbed to 95 in different areas under its control, including the southern port city of Aden.

The United Nations warned on Wednesday that its programs to fight the coronavirus in war-torn Yemen might have to stop by the end of the month.

The warning came a day after international donors raised $1.35 billion in humanitarian aid for Yemen. The amount fell short of the UN’s target of $2.4 billion needed to save the world’s biggest aid operation, however.
