 The Doctors Without Borders (MSF) issued on Saturday, a statement on COVID-19 treatment in Aden and it reads as follows:

"In Aden, we are facing a difficult situation but are doing everything we can to treat COVID19 at al-Amal hospital. Our teams are working around the clock to provide the best care they can.

We have 16 tonnes of equipment and drugs that are arriving in the next few days to further improve the care we are able to offer at the centre, which now has 40 beds in total.

It has been a huge challenge to find and organize the supply of oxygen in Aden. Our teams are manually changing an average of 250 bottles per day, a mammoth task.

InbAden, as across Yemen, our teams are made up of both Yemeni and international staff. At al-Amal hospital, we have 20 international and 250 local staff working side by side to provide the best medical care they can to our patients.

MSF is in the process of setting up a second COVID19 centre at al-Jumhourriyah hospital in Aden, but we continue to admit and treat patients at al-Amal.

COVID19 is a challenge to everyone treating it across the world, but MSF are committed to providing the best treatment possible to all our patients in Yemen and across the world.

We continue to see that patients are coming to the centre in Aden too late – please, if you find yourself breathless after just a few steps, don’t delay. Come to hospital.

MSF has an agreement to run a second COVID19 centre at al-Jumhourriyah hospital in Aden, where the already-existing MoH activities will be scaled up by MSF over the coming days and weeks. Please note – this is a 2nd centre, and we continue to admit and treat patients at al-Amal."
