(elbcradio.com/Liberia/Oct. 30, 2014)-The Government of the People’s Republic of China has approved additional US$82m package for the fight against Ebola in Liberia.

According to Chinese Ambassador to Liberia, Yhang Yue, the money will be used to establish Ebola Treatment Units (ETUs), train health workers, and bring more medical supplies to the country to fight Ebola.

Ambassador Yhang made the disclosure Tuesday, October 28, 2014 when an advanced Chinese Team met with President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf at the Foreign Ministry in Monrovia.

The advanced Chinese Team is in Liberia to construct Ebola ETUs in the country.

The Chinese Ambassador also delivered a special message of congratulations from Chinese President to President Johnson-Sirleaf on her 76th birth anniversary.

The Chinese Leader praised the Liberian Leader for her commitment to sustaining the democratic process in Liberia, the provision of needed health care and basic social services to the citizenry.

In response, the President Johnson-Sirleaf welcomed the advanced Chinese Team to Liberia and lauded the Chinese Government for its continued support to the country.

President Johnson-Sirleaf, however, called on donors and other friendly nations assisting Liberia in its fight against Ebola to integrate the ETUs to sophisticated health facilities.

According to her, the integration of the ETUs would improve the Liberian facilities and continue serve the Liberian people.
