Stockholm: Sweden is sending experts to Liberia to provide assistance to help combat Ebola outbreak in the country.

According to health officials, the experts plan to build a camp for the medical staff there, Xinhua reported.

"We are sending the staff to Liberia by the end of this week. They will check the conditions for building a camp for 100-200 people," said Emilio Konig from the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency.

Konig claimed that the camp would cost about 40 million SEK (USD 570,000) and was expecting to split the bill with other countries.

According to a Swedish doctor, the camp will give the medical staff a good control over the hygiene conditions.
