The aid will include cash, food and materials, announced Xi, who is on a state visit to India, and added that his country would also provide the World Health Organization with 2 million USD in cash and give the African Union the same amount, said reports.

The spreading Ebola in West Africa has been a severe challenge for the international community, including China and India, Xi said.

The new aid is aimed at helping the three West African countries fight Ebola, enhancing epidemic prevention capability of surrounding countries, and supporting regional organisations concerned to play a leading and coordinating role in fighting the epidemic, he noted.
