“The outbreak of COVID-19 is a profound challenge for Pakistan and we are committed to providing flexible and timely support to help manage this crisis,” said ADB Country Director for Pakistan, Xiaohong Yang.

The medical aid will be disbursed within the country by the National Disaster Management Authority (NDMA).
