One MILLION and Counting: Yemen Cholera outbreak now the worlds largest on record

Revelation 18:4 “And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, (Worldly pleasures and the whore religions) that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.”

If you do not heed the Word of God:

Revelation 18:8 “Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.”

And if the Plagues don’t get your attention:

Revelation 16:8-9 “And the fourth angel poured out his vial upon the sun; and power was given unto him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched with great heat, and blasphemed the name of God, which hath power over these plagues: and they repented not to give him glory.”

The Watchers – Yemen’s 5-month old cholera crisis is now the world’s largest outbreak since records began, Oxfam International said today as the number of suspected cases rose to over 755 000. From August 25 until September 27, there has been an average of 5 750 daily cases, so at this rate, the number of suspected cholera cases will reach one million in less than eight weeks.

The Yemen outbreak has overtaken the 754 373 suspected cases recorded in Haiti in the six years between 2010 and 2015. Over 2 100 people have already died from cholera, and while the spread of cholera has slowed slightly, it is still spreading fast and at current rates of increase, the number of suspected cases would reach a million by November.

While cholera isn’t new to Yemen, the scale of this outbreak is unprecedented and is being driven by a two-and-a-half year conflict, a borderline famine, and entrenched poverty. Over half of all health facilities are destroyed or only partially working, seven million people are a step away from famine and over 20 million need some level of humanitarian aid.

“Yemen is the world’s worst humanitarian crisis and it is getting even worse. More than two years of war have created ideal conditions for the disease to spread. The war has pushed the country to the edge of famine, forced millions from their homes, virtually destroyed the already weak health services and hampered efforts to respond to the cholera outbreak, Oxfam’s Humanitarian Director, Nigel Timmins said.

“Cholera is taking a horrific toll on people in Yemen. We cannot continue to allow children to die in pain of a disease that is easily treatable,” Timmins added.

“Yemen’s tragedy is a man-made catastrophe for which all sides bear responsibility. Yet it is being fuelled by deliberate political decisions in London, Washington and other world capitals. Billions of dollars worth of arms are being sold with little if any concern for the destruction of lives their use is causing. Our common humanity tells us this has to stop and efforts to foster peace have to start.”

Since March 2015, the war has killed over 5 100 civilians and forced about 3 million people from their homes, the report said. When the second wave of cholera outbreak started on April 27, the war had laid the basis for it to spread.
