Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday pledged $6m to the World Food Programme, for food aid for countries isolated by the outbreak. That follows earlier pledges of about $33m in medical aid to Sierra Leone, Liberia, and Guinea, and $2m each in contributions to the World Health Organization and African Union…” (Hornby, 10/10).
