BEIJING, October 24. /TASS/. China plans to earmark $81 million in aid to Liberia, Guinea and Sierra-Leone to combat the Ebola virus, Secretary General of the Communist Party of China, Xi Jinping, told Tanzania’s President Jakaya Kikwete at a meeting on Friday during his official visit to Beijing.
“We will provide money and material help and send more experts and physicians to combat the virus. Besides, we are going to build a medical center in Liberia”, he said.
This is the fourth time China provides aid to West African countries to support them in their struggle against the Ebola epidemic. Beijing allocated some $50 million over the last two months to fight the deadly virus. It also provided humanitarian aid, medicine and medical equipment. Moreover, around 200 Chinese specialists are currently working in the epidemic area.
According to the latest reports of the World Health Organization (WHO), the death toll from Ebola virus neared 4,900, while the number of probable and suspected cases is around 10,000, with most of them detected in three West African countries — Liberia, Guinea and Sierra-Leone.
