The Asia Development has given $US1.5 million grants to four Pacific Islands to help with their response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

The grants will be divided between Federated States of Micronesia, the Marshall Islands, Nauru and Tuvalu.

The bank said the money will help alleviate immediate financial, logistical and other constraints to prepare their health services.

The grants are on top of a US$6.5 billion aid package that was announced for Asia and the Pacific last month.
