due to lack of oil derivatives,  thousands of patients at risk of death: Sana’a warns

The Houthis-run Ministry of Public Health and Population has warned of a major health disaster and exposed to thousands of patients of death due to a shortage of oil derivatives.

A statement issued by the Ministry blamed the United Nations and the states of Saudi coalition for daily deaths due to the deteriorating health situation as a result of the war and the blockade and preventing oil ships from entering Yemen.

The Ministry indicated that hospitals depend entirely on oil derivatives in providing them with energy to operate medical, diagnostic, and therapeutic devices, moving ambulances and emergency vehicles.

The health ministry confirmed, that preventing the entry of oil derivatives would turn hospitals into cemeteries in light of running out of fuel and stopping ambulance services.

It called on human rights organizations to quickly move and pressure the aggressive countries to allow ships of oil and food to enter into Yemen.
