LAGOS — The Chinese medical team in Liberia will continue to stay in the country to help battle against the Ebola outbreak, team leader Zhou Yongjun told Xinhua on Friday.

"A total of 352 cases and 170 deaths have been reported so far in Liberia since April when the deadly virus broke out in the country," Zhou said in a telephone interview.

"Egypt and the United States have evacuated their medical staff from the hospitals in the capital of Liberia, where the epidemic has also broken out," said Zhou, adding that local doctors were also put on leave.
