It was reported on 2nd July this year that cholera had killed 1500 people in Yemen.

The death toll from a major cholera outbreak in Yemen has risen to 1,500, Nevio Zagaria, the World Health Organisation’s representative in Yemen, said on Saturday, and appealed for more help to put an end to the epidemic.

Yemen has been devastated by a 27-month war between a Saudi-led coalition and the Iran-aligned Houthi group, making it a breeding ground for the disease, which spreads by faeces getting into food or water and thrives in places with poor sanitation.

It is now being reported that cholera has killed 1992 people in Yemen.
The death toll from the cholera epidemic in Yemen has increased to 1,992 since the outbreak was reported in April, the World Health Organization (WHO) announced. The organisation in a statement on Saturday said 419,804 suspected cases of cholera have been reported since April 27, reports Xinhua news agency.

...More than two years into war, Yemen is facing a total collapse, where two thirds of the total population, around 19 million, need humanitarian aid. About 10.3 million people are at risk of famine and 14.5 million lack access to safe drinking water.

1992 - 1500 = 492

Trump flogs weapons to the Saudis and logistically supports the Saudis in their war on Yemen.

May also flogs weapons to the Saudis.

As I said : Conservatism is the new killer-culture.

While Trump is helping to kill brown "beautiful babies", and not just in Yemen, Watson gets really, really upset over a J K Rowling tweet about Trump and a disabled boy.
