China’s fourth relief shipment left Shanghai on Tuesday, bound for Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.

“This shipment includes hospital beds, ambulances, protection equipment, and incinerators,” the head of foreign assistance Wang Shengwen said.

There are additional plans to send more supplies, which should arrive in the affected nations in mid-March.

The medical shipments are in addition to food aid that continues to be sent to West Africa. A number of Chinese medical teams are also working in the affected countries to help build facilities, train staff, and test for the virus. Chinese medical teams also said they have cured three Ebola patients in Liberia.
