RIYADH, Saudi King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud on Thursday ordered the competent bodies in the Kingdom to respond urgently to the cholera outbreak in Yemen.

Acting on these royal instructions, King Salman Center for Relief and Humanitarian Aid (KSCRHA) set up a taskforce on emergency medical intervention to contain the deadly disease, KSCRHA general supervisor Dr. Abdullah Al-Rabi'a said.

"The KSCRHA is working with the ministries of health of Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and Yemen to arrange the treatment and prevention efforts," Dr. Rabi'a, also advisor to the Royal Court, said in a statement carried by SPA.

Contacts are underway to implement the emergency response plan between the GCC aid coordination center, on one hand, and the concerned bodies of the GCC member states, the members of the Saudi-led coalition, the World Health Organization (WHO), the International Medical Corps (IMC) and the UN Children's Fund (UNICEF), he added.
