The director of the Al-Mayadeen TV in Sana'a, Ahmed Abdulrahman, revealed Saturday evening, the arrival of a UN plane to the Yemeni capital, Sanaa, to transport the driver of the UN Resident Coordinator in Yemen after he was infected with the novel Coronavirus (Covid-19).
Abdulrahman said on his Facebook page: "A UN plane arrived yesterday, Friday, at Sanaa airport, from Addis Ababa, to transport the driver of the Humanitarian Coordinator Lise Grande, who was infected with Covid-19."
"This happens as hundreds of Yemenis die every day in various governorates as a result of this epidemic.", he added.
What was published by the director of the Al-Mayadeen TV in Sana'a raised a situation of dissatisfaction among many social media activists in Yemen, considering this to be a provocation to Yemenis who have been trading international organizations for their human suffering for the past 6 years.
Some activists went on to accuse the driver of Lise Grande that he came to Yemen on a specific mission "spreading the Coronavirus", while others said that transporting the driver with a special UN plane outside Yemen was accompanied by responsible behavior by the Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen.
The United Nations announced Friday that Yemen's hospitals devoted to confronting the Corona pandemic, number 38, were completely filled with people infected with the virus.
The United Nations Humanitarian Coordinator in Yemen, Lise Grande, said that
Preliminary reports from intensive care unit (ICUs) indicate a case fatality rate of nearly 20 per cent compared to the global average of 7 percent.
