Houthis' health minister said the government had been transparent about the number of confirmed cases and those who have recovered.
The number of global coronavirus infections has surged past 4.5 million, with over 306,000 deaths and 1.7 million recoveries. Here are more coronavirus-related developments for May 15:
A five-year war has shattered Yemen's health system, pushed millions to the brink of famine and divided the country between the internationally recognised government and the Houthi rebels, who overran the capital Sanaa in late 2014.
The arrival of the coronavirus pandemic in Yemen, which reported its first case earlier this month, threatens deeper and more widespread suffering in the Arab world’s poorest country, convulsed by civil war since 2014.
A Saudi-led coalition fighting Yemen's Houthi movement said it would halt military operations from 0900 GMT for two weeks in support of United Nations efforts to end the conflict that has killed more than 100,000 people.
The prospect of Covid-19 hitting Yemen is terrifying considering the already ongoing humanitarian catastrophes in the country.
The strikes on Sanaa came after Saudi Arabia intercepted two ballistic missiles the Houthis said they had launched on Saturday towards Riyadh and southern parts of Saudi near the Yemeni border.
Britain, which drafted the resolution, and the US and other Western nations supported the inclusion of the experts' findings, but Russia and China objected.
Houthi rebels say Saudi-led coalition killed 30 people in intense bombing in Al Jawf province where they shot down tornado fighter jet of Saudi air force. Coalition, however, says its jet crashed, without giving more details.
The Houthi rebels did not specify when the strikes were carried out and neither Aramco nor the Saudi-led coalition backing the Yemeni government immediately responded to requests for confirmation.
The sudden spike in violence across long-stalemated front lines threatened to exacerbate the five-year conflict and complicate indirect peace talks between Saudi Arabia and the Iran-backed rebels.
Yemen’s warring sides opened a new front in their five-year conflict on Saturday - a battle over old and new banknotes that threatens to create two economies in the same state.
