Expert Team heads to China in January: WHO

Vastavam web: The head of emergencies at the World Health Organisation says a team of international experts looking into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic will travel to China the first week of January. Dr Michael Ryan says there will be quarantine arrangements for the team, which will visit the suspected site of the outbreak in the city of Wuhan. The purpose of the mission is to go to the original point at which human cases were detected and that we fully expect to do that, he said.

He says the team of international experts will work with our Chinese colleagues, and he adds they will not be … supervised by Chinese officials. He seemed to allude the Americas, which is home to roughly three-fourths of the global cases. He says it is likely transmission will intensify in countries already dealing with surges in cases.
