Over 80 Yemeni newborns die every day due to war: Ministry

PRESS TV – An official with Yemen’s Health Ministry said more than 80 newborn babies lose their lives on a daily basis because the war-torn country does not have the required medical equipment due to the Saudi-led war and blockade.

Najeeb al-Qubati, the undersecretary of Yemen's Ministry of Public Health and Population for the Population Sector said some 39 percent of babies are premature, which shows a significant increase compared to the period before the start of the war.
