The burden of COVID-19 in low-income and conflict-affected countries was unclear, largely reflecting low testing rates. In parts of Yemen, like Aden, reports indicated a peak in hospital admissions and burials during May–June 2020.
Aden was under British rule in the period from 1839 to 1967. In 1967, after years of struggle, Aden and other southern governorates gained their independence. The city of Aden subsequently became the capital of South Yemen between 1967 and 1990. In 1990, both South Yemen and North Yemen combined to form the present Republic of Yemen. Aden is now the commercial capital of the Republic of Yemen.
At 1,114 square kilometers, Aden is the second-smallest governorate in Yemen by area. However, its population density is the second-highest, after Sanaa Governorate.
