Yemen Embassy in China disburses financial aid to scholars in Wuhan
The Yemeni Embassy in the People's Republic of China has announced additional funds from the Prime Minister’s office to 170 scholarship students and their families in Wuhan city, the capital of China’s Hubei province, where the novel coronavirus was first discovered.
More than 1,000 people have died from the outbreak globally, since it was first reported on Dec.31. The death toll has exceeded that from the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) epidemic, which killed 774 people between 2002 and 2003.
Coronavirus is widely hypothesized to be airborne, but scientific research into the disease and its mode of transmission is still ongoing.
The embassy said it is in constant and continuous communication with the students and the Yemeni community in China to follow up on their situation after the spread of the virus, under the orders of President Abdrabbuh Mansour Hadi and Prime Minister Maeen Abdulmalik Saeed, according to a statement reported by state-run Saba News agency.
So far, no coronavirus cases have been reported among the Yemeni community in China.
The embassy separately announced the disbursement of scholarship aid for a third quarter to students in China.
