The Islamic Development Bank (ISDB) plans to lend Tunisia $280 million to deal with the coronavirus crisis, a government source told Reuters on Thursday, as part of an urgent aid package to support member states.

The bank said on Twitter that the bank had allocated $2.3 billion to help member states combat the pandemic.

The loan will be allocated to finance the central pharmacy to support the country’s ability to purchase medicines and to support the health ministry, Reuters reported.
