MILAN, October 17. /TASS/. Beijing plans to earmark $16 million in aid to West African countries to combat the Ebola virus, Chinese Premier Li Keqiang has told the summit of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM).

The Chinese premier said the country is highly prepared to fight against the Ebola virus, which poses a huge danger to the health of the whole population on the planet.

Beijing will be together with the international community “until the final victory,” he stressed.

Chinese President Xi Jinping said earlier this week China will ramp up efforts against Ebola.

In September, China earmarked $32.5 million in humanitarian aid to West African states, in particular, for medical treatment and equipment. Beijing has also sent a group of Chinese doctors to the epidemic zone.

The World Health Organization (WHO) reported earlier this week that the Ebola epidemic was spreading geographically and the death toll neared the figure of 4,500, while the number of probable and suspected cases is around 9,000.
