In a statement, the World Bank confirmed that this grant is to enable the PA to meet the urgent health requirements for the fight against the pandemic.
About a week ago, the World Bank offered an $800,000 grant for the PA to fund the same efforts.
This grant aims to slow down and limit the spread of the coronavirus, as well as to improve the health conditions of those who have already contracted the virus.
“The World Bank Group is taking broad, fast action to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and we already have health response operations moving forward in over 65 countries,” president of the World Bank Group, David Malpass, disclosed.
