Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told a virtual press briefing: "The UN and our humanitarian partners in Yemen are responding by focusing on case management, risk communications, community engagement and the protection of the wider public health system,".
More than 125 metric tons of supplies have been delivered while 4,836 metric tons are in the pipeline, Dujarric said. These include 1,000 intensive care unit beds, 417 ventilators, 52,400 tests and 755,000 pieces of personal protective equipment.
More supplies are urgently needed to scale up the response. None of this work can continue without urgent funding, he added.
