London, UK, 5th Feb 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, Covid 19 pandemic came like a storm into the lives of the people. B-Finances expert analyst says that the catastrophe it caused was not limited to one race or a specific territory and that the whole world has suffered it in various degrees. Restricted flights and months-long lockdowns lead to a serious economic downfall all around the globe. The pandemic infected millions of people, while thousands died due to the inability of getting proper treatment. The outbreak was widespread in all parts of the world, but the majority of casualties were reported from China, India and Brazil, where population density is higher. Even though, apart from this group, few other countries suffered majorly. Countries like Australia also suffered heavy losses.
The pandemic started in 2019 and quickly spread to other parts of the world. The virus was initially reported from China, and within a very short span of time, it spread across various parts of Asia, Australia and finally reached Europe at the end of the first month. The virus spread like an inferno, with no resistance. The mortality rate of this pandemic was very high, with some of the infected people dying within days of getting affected with the Covid 19 virus. The survivors had natural immunity against the virus and could spread the infection only when they had direct contact with any other person. The pandemic was devastating in America, the United Kingdom and India as the number of casualties increased exponentially.
After the vaccine was made and vaccine drives were carried out across various parts of the world, the mortality rate was brought down to an extent, with the affected population now exposed to a comparatively safer environment. It is also true that many countries had a tough time with the Covid 19 virus due to the lack of infrastructure and labs that were required for vaccine making and distribution. Expert analyst says that investors all around the globe lost trillions of dollars due to the pandemic. Even today, there is no up to the mark infrastructure for work, and people are still suffering due to the Covid 19 epidemic.
The COVID-19 epidemic has exacerbated Yemen’s existing vulnerabilities, coming on top of many issues the country already faces, such as war, economic devastation, hunger, sickness, and displacement. Yemen is caught in a bitter conflict between a Saudi-led military coalition and the Iranian-aligned Houthi movement. The war has devastated the country’s economy and healthcare system, as well as unleashing the world’s most severe humanitarian catastrophe, with millions of people on the brink of starvation and illnesses such as cholera, diphtheria, and malaria.
All of this adds up to a humanitarian tragedy. An estimated 50% of hospitals and healthcare facilities are not operational, and even those that are running at close to full capacity aren’t utilising all they could. Healthcare facilities and employees lack the necessary equipment and assets. There has been a sharp decline in the number of remittances sent to Yemen, thereby damaging the already feeble economy terribly.
In such a situation, Yemeni women have decided to take up the challenge that the war and the deadly Covid-19 virus have left for them. They are not only helping themselves but also other women by taking up this deadly challenge and teaching others how to cope with it. Dhrah is one of those women. She saw that her country was facing a severe shortage of masks and protective equipment.
She opened a small company making surgical masks and clothing. She believed her firm could meet the demand for personal protective equipment (PPE) more rapidly than costly imports as a result of the country’s worsening currency crisis. Her business now has 20 full-time employees. She is among the numerous female-owned firms that have adapted to the coronavirus pandemic and are surviving a war too. Keep in mind that Yemen is a place where women are not usually seen running businesses and factories. In a time of war and pandemic, Yemeni women have come out to fight taboos too.
The expert analyst said that where the Covid-19 virus and resultant pandemic brought total destruction and misery in Yemen, it also led to the establishment of new enterprises. Yemeni women were able to break the shackles of society and show that they, too, are capable of working in such difficult situations. It is, therefore, an encouraging sign to see Yemeni women at the forefront when it comes to making medicines and surgical equipment. It is good to see that women are not just confined to their homes, and Yemeni women have come out and taken up the challenge that war and deadly pandemics bring with them.
He also said that women all around the globe have proved time and again that they, too, have the ability to work in such hostile conditions.
