FRANCE 24 English published this video item, entitled “Yemen gravediggers, bulldozer join forces against Covid-19” – below is their description.

Between the mountain ranges of #Taez, dozens of fresh graves are being hastily dug in #Yemen’s third city to deal with a spike in deaths from #Covid-linked complications. Groups of men, most of them wearing neither masks nor gloves, carry caskets to Al-Saeed cemetery. People are struggling to bury their dead amid a surge in cases of coronavirus that the war-torn country is badly equipped to combat.
