Satellite images suggest deaths almost doubled in Yemen's Aden during pandemic

A new study using satellite technology found that the number of deaths in Yemen's port city of Aden had almost doubled during the coronavirus pandemic, researchers said on Wednesday.

Academics at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine (LSHTM) analysed the burial activity of all cemeteries in the Aden governorate using high-resolution satellite images.

They calculated 2,100 excess deaths between April and September against an expected baseline of about 1,300 deaths.
