WHO Chief disappointed over China’s move of not granting entry to COVID experts

It must be noted that as part of a long-awaited mission to probe early cases of the Coronavirus, first reported over a year ago in China’s Wuhan, the 10-strong team had been due to set off in early January. But China has still not allowed the entry of a team of international experts to examine the origins of the novel Coronavirus, for which the Chief of the World Health Organization said he was “very disappointed”.

In an online news conference in Geneva, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “Today we learned that Chinese officials have not yet finalised the necessary permissions for the team’s arrival in China.” “I have been in contact with senior Chinese officials and I have once again made it clear the mission is a priority for the WHO, “ he added.
