Three Egyptian military planes, loaded with tons of medicines, medical supplies and equipment, took off from Cairo and arrived in Tunis on Wednesday to help Tunisia face its current coronavirus crisis.

The medical aid was sent upon the directives of President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

The shipments were provided by the Egyptian health ministry with the aim of alleviating burdens on Tunisian people in the current crisis.

The Tunisian government thanked Egypt for its continued support.

Several Arab countries have sent to the North African country medical aid, whether field hospitals or coronavirus medications, vaccines or medical supplies, after hospitalisations surged due to the spread of the Delta variant.
