The Tunisian Minister of Health, Faouzi Mahdi, was sacked on Tuesday, as the country suffers a wave of submersion of its health system, according to information reported by the local press.

He is replaced by Mohamed Trabelsi, Minister of Social Affairs, who becomes interim Minister of Health.

This decision comes at the heart of an unprecedented health disaster in Tunisia.

The country lacks beds, oxygen, masks and other medical equipment essential to the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.
