CEB supports health sector with €200 million amid COVID-19 crisis

The Council of Europe Development Bank (CEB) approved a € 200 million loan to support Greece’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic, strengthen the country’s health sector and enhance the level of medical services provided to the population in the context of the ongoing health crisis.

The Greek government took early on a series of measures to combat the pandemic and contain the spread of the virus. As a result, Greece has registered a very low number of deaths and confirmed cases. Nevertheless, the health crisis has put pressure on the national health system and caused considerable budgetary strain.
