Earlier, a senior Tunisian health official warned of the exponential spread of the COVID-19 in Tunisia, saying the pandemic has reached ‘Stage Four’.

“During this stage, contracting COVID-19 within a family exposes all members to the risk of infection, which is likely to worsen the number of cases across the country,’’ said Chokri Hammouda, Director-General of National Authority for Assessment and Accreditation in Healthcare, in a statement quoted by Tunis Afrique Presse.

On April 16, 2020, China donated a batch of medical aid to Tunisia’s Ministry of National Defense, including face masks, test kits and medical protective googles. (Xinhua/NAN)
