China is ramping-up its assistance in the fight against Ebola with the dispatch of an additional 232 army medical workers to West Africa.

State media say the latest contingent to be sent to afflicted nations will depart on Tuesday, with 154 of them headed to Liberia and 78 to Sierra Leone.

They join 43 army doctors and 35 specialists from the Chinese Centre for Disease Control already working in Sierra Leone, who have treated 61 patients and trained 1 600 local medical workers.

China, which has not reported any Ebola cases, has considerable experience working with infectious diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome and avian flu.

The country is also seeking to boost its humanitarian and diplomatic engagement with Africa on a level commensurate with its economic involvement on the continent.
