TOKYO: Japan will provide up to $100 million in fresh aid to Ebola-hit West Africa, the government said on Friday, after the United States called for further global efforts to combat the deadly virus. Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said the aid would come on top of $40 million assistance announced by Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in September. “We will go ahead with our assistance in an appropriate manner for the purpose of helping treat Ebola patients and preventing infections from spreading further,” Suga told a news conference.
