The outbreak of epidemics and fever deepens the pain of Yemenis

The outbreak of epidemics and fever deepens the pain of Yemenis  Recently, there have been noticeable cases of fevers and epidemics in various regions of Yemen, which is witnessing a bitter war that has had a negative impact on the health sector, which is struggling to survive.  It has become remarkable that health facilities are crowded with patients who have been ravaged by epidemics, at a time when they continue to resist with emaciated bodies burdened by worries, diseases and aches.  Among the most prominent diseases spreading in Yemen today are dengue fever, and the outbreak of the Corona virus, without taking precautionary measures due to poverty and ignorance.  The ongoing war in Yemen has led to the destruction of many health facilities, and only half of the medical sector is still working, according to previous UN reports.  According to the World Health Organization, most Yemenis are facing difficulty in accessing health care due to the repercussions of the war.  Suffering from illness Yemeni citizen Fahim al-Jabzi looks sad as he stands next to his brother, who has fallen into a coma from which he has not recovered.  Al-Jabzi says at Al-Jumhouri Hospital in the city of Taiz (southwest) that "my brother felt very sick, had a headache and a fever, which made him take painkillers to get himself out of that condition."  "Unfortunately, sedatives did not help him, but put him in a coma, and he was taken to the hospital," he told Anadolu Agency. He continued, "Here, the doctors told us after the diagnosis that my brother had a viral fever."  Al-Jabzi added, "We are living in great suffering, and we are finding it difficult to save my brother's life because of our difficult financial situation."  Disease cases are increasing With the health sector weak in the face of diseases, doctors find it difficult to treat patients, which makes epidemics continue to spread unchecked.  Dr. Nashwan Al-Husami, director of Al-Jumhouri Hospital in Taiz, one of the largest government hospitals, says, "We are noticing these days the spread of viral fevers in numbers that are increasing every day."  He added to Anadolu Agency that "about 120 cases arrive daily at the hospital, in the absence of central support to confront such epidemic cases." He explained that "the spread of epidemics came for several reasons, most notably the lack of a specialized center to combat them, to be able to absorb all cases, in addition to the country's lack of a research center to study this spread."  He stated that "the lack of hygiene and the spread of waste (waste) and swamps in residential neighborhoods play a role in the spread of epidemics." He complained about the lack of specialized cadres to treat and combat epidemics, in order to limit its large spread.  Al-Husami appealed to the government, the Ministry of Health and organizations working in the health and humanitarian sector to intervene to save the catastrophic health situation in Taiz Governorate, and the Republican Hospital in particular.  And he added, "We need laboratory solutions and medicines for viral diseases, and the accompanying symptoms such as fever and infections."  The spread of fevers and epidemics "There is a spread of fevers and epidemics in the country in general, where many people are currently suffering from various symptoms and signs of illness," said Yemeni doctor Alaa Al-Kulaibi.  He added to Anadolu Agency, "There are cases that arrive in hospitals related to diets related to the respiratory system and others related to the digestive system, in addition to diets of unknown origin."  And he added, "Citizens suffer a lot in order to obtain treatment due to the deterioration of the health sector and its lack of specialized cadres, in addition to the effects of the currency decline and the deterioration of the living situation of many residents."  He pointed out that "Yemen in these circumstances needs strong health support, including medicines and primary health care, as well as attention to diagnosis and treatment in general."
