The United Nations says suspected cholera cases in Yemen have risen to thousands in less than a month since the outbreak of the disease. According to the international body, the number of the cases has increased 27 percent over the past week alone. The UN blames the situation on the ongoing Saudi war which has weakened Yemen’s health system.
