Several hospitals in Sana’a shut down due to fuel crisis

A number of hospitals in the capital Sana’a declared on Sunday that their medical services would be stopped due to the lack of fuel.

In a news statement, Dr. Mutahar Al-Marouni, Director of the Public Health Office in the capital, called on the World Health Organisation, UNICEF and other international organisations to provide oil derivatives to hospitals and health centers in a way that guarantees the continuation of the medical services.

He affirmed that a number of hospitals and health centers in the capital have stopped providing medical services due to running out of fuel, leading to the death of patients.

Dr. Al-Marouni held the Saudi-led coalition countries and the United Nations responsible for the catastrophic repercussions on the health sector brought about by the Saudi blockade.
