FluTrackers is now carrying a confirmation [3 and also 4 and others] by the Minister of Public Health and Population, Dr. Ahmed Qasim Al-Ansi, that a case has been confirmed in San'a (popn ~2-million), the capital city of Yemen.
This is the 1oth State to host the virus.
It is not yet clear who did the testing, the condition of the patient, if the testing has been confirmed to the WHO's satisfaction or whether the case was acquired within Yemen (any travel or contact with another known case from outside the country) or is an imported case.
We await the WHO disease outbreak news article or a more detailed account from Yemeni Health Officials.
