 A United Nations staff member in Yemen died of Covid-19 amid a surge in coronavirus cases, as international agencies warned the pandemic could spiral out of control in one of the world’s most impoverished and war-battered nations.

The local U.N. worker, who was employed by the World Food Program, died earlier this week, officials in the world organization said Thursday. They didn’t elaborate on how he had contracted the virus but said his death illustrated concerns that people in Yemen don’t get emergency health-care soon enough.
The WHO says it fears COVID-19 could rip through Yemen as the population has some of the lowest levels of immunity to disease compared with other countries. Minimal testing capacity has added to concerns.

The supreme national emergency committee for COVID-19 said on Thursday, that the total number of COVID-19 patients has reached 193, including 33 deaths and five recoveries.
