The World Health Organization (WHO) will send an expert group to China in the coming days in search of the source of coronavirus, which triggered the pandemic.
This was stated by WHO Director-General Tedros Adhan Ghebreyesus, reports Deutsche Welle.
He noted that physicians will be able to better fight coronavirus if they are aware of its origin.
“We can better fight the virus when we find out everything about it, including how the outbreak started,” said the head of WHO.
In addition, Gebreyesus said that many countries have made progress in overcoming coronavirus. He emphasized that the global pandemic is accelerating.
He did not specify what the mission of the group would be. According to him, WHO has been trying for several weeks to get China to attract its experts to study the origin of the virus.
Gebreyesus said the pandemic has exposed “the best and worst qualities of humanity.”
