The scale of deaths caused by the disease appears to have been decreasing in recent days as only five Yemenis have lost their lives to the virus since Monday.

Impoverished Yemen has remained in a state of civil war since 2014, when Houthi rebels overran much of the country, including the capital Sanaa.
