Cholera in Yemen - mapping deaths from the current epidemic using HDX in R

Cholera in Yemen : UPDATED 12-JULY-2017

At the time of writing this, the WHO has released information about 320199 cases of Cholera in Yemen, with 1742 deaths.

This information has been collated by the Humanitarian Data Exchange (HDX), and put online. I made a new function for hdxr the other day to make it easier to use maps from HDX, and wanted to learn more about what’s happening in Yemen.

All the information below has been taken from HDX and read into R using hdxr. The code to run it all is in this rmarkdown document
