Sanaa, Aug 7 (TIWN) Yemen's internationally-recognised government has reported a new rise of the daily Covid-19 cases following a relative decline during the past weeks as the war-torn country's is also facing the worst humanitarian crisis.

In the government-controlled Yemeni provinces, the health authorities officially recorded 27 new confirmed COVID-19 cases in the southern port city of Aden and neighboring towns.  The health ministry said that 15 new cases were officially detected in Aden, five in Hadramout province, three in Shabwa province, two in Taiz province, and two in Lahj province, bringing the total confirmed cases to 7,131.  It said that the medical teams recorded one death in the country's southeastern province of Hadramout, raising the death toll from the virus to 1,384.  Last week, the United Nations warned that COVID-19 cases have increased in Yemen over recent days, triggering fears that the war-torn Arab country is facing the third wave of the pandemic.
