China to Provide Ebola Relief for West Africa
   2014-08-07 21:30:03    Xinhua      Web Editor: Fu Yu

China will provide relief worth of 30 million yuan (4.9 million U.S. dollars) to Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea as an outbreak of the deadly Ebola virus sweeps West Africa.

The emergency humanitarian aid will mainly include personal protective equipment, patient monitors, sprays and medicines. It is the second batch of Ebola relief from China, according to a statement of the Ministry of Commerce.

In May, China sent a first batch of relief goods, mostly for disease prevention, control and treatment, to Guinea, Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea-Bissau, valued at one million yuan for each country.

A WHO statement on Wednesday said the death toll from the Ebola outbreak in West Africa had risen to 932. The epidemic situations in Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea are said to be particularly serious.

The MOC data showed that about 20,000 Chinese nationals live in the the three countries.
