The Aden-based government’s coronavirus committee said two cases including one death were reported in Aden, and two in Lahej, including one death.
Yemen is divided between the internationally recognised government based in the south and the Iran-aligned Houthi movement headquartered in the north. The Houthis have so far reported two COVID-19 infections, with one death. (Writing by Lisa Barrington)
