  China is closely watching the outbreak of Ebola in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and stands ready to offer health professionals and experts if asked, a leading Chinese health official said Sunday .

Ma Xiaowei, head of China's National Health Commission, is leading the Chinese delegation to the World Health Assembly (WHA) that is to kick off in Geneva Monday. At a press conference on Sunday, he said "We are very much concerned about the development of the outbreak of Ebola in the DRC."

The DRC's latest confirmation on Saturday increased the number of people affected by Ebola in the country from 17 to 21.

"As you all know in 2014 when the Ebola outbreak occurred in West Africa, the Chinese government and the people made a quick response and... we sent experts and public health professional helping the West African countries to deal with the Ebola outbreak," said Ma.
