Yemen – ‘Coronavirus Will KILL Us! End the Yemen War!’ (Radhya Almutawakel) (E861)
On this episode of Going Underground, we speak to American infectious disease epidemiologist David Heymann, public health expert at the London School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine. He discusses the global coronavirus pandemic, the correlation between a high number of hospital beds and lower mortality rates, the UK’s earlier ‘herd immunity’ approach, the danger of Covid-19 spreading through prisons, how countries are sharing research on the coronavirus with each other for free, and more!
Finally, we speak to Chairperson of Mwatana for Human Rights Radhya Almutawakel on the Yemen War. She discusses Western arms sales to the country and support for Saudi Arabia and UAE, why Yemen is not prepared for the arrival of the coronavirus after health facilities have been decimated, the likely scale of the coronavirus crisis in her country should it arrive given that the largest outbreak of cholera in history happened in Yemen, why the Yemen War must end to stop the spread of the coronavirus, and more!
