Info Minister denies Houthi allegations of coronavirus infections in northwest Yemen
Yemen's Information Minister Muammar al-Eryani denied allegations by militant leader Abdulmalik al-Houthi that coronavirus infections are already taking place in Meedi a northwestern Yemen city in the province of Hajjah.
In a statement, al-Eryani said the health ministry and its affiliate healthcare centers have not yet recorded any case of infection in Yemen.
"These irresponsible allegations by the leader of the rebel militia reveal his moral lowliness as his militia seeks to exploit the international plague in the context of its military mobilization and morale war against (oppositionist) Yemenis," he said.
He warned the militia against trafficking Iranian terrorist experts into the country as Iranian elements were found responsible for transmitting the disease to Lebanon and Iraq."
