World Health Says Team of Experts To Fly To China
WORLD HEALTH – The World Health Organization (WHO) gave an update on the investigation of the COVID-19 disease in China.
The COVID-19 pandemic is the biggest global challenge that rocked several healthcare systems this 2020. It is a new coronavirus disease that is believed to have been recorded first in China.
In the Chinese country, a total of 86,770 cases of the coronavirus disease was recorded including 4,634 deaths and 81,821 recoveries. The disease has rapidly spread between countries.
Even the World Health Organization (WHO) was alarmed by how fast the disease has spread across the globe. Now, the pandemic is ongoing and more than 74 million cases of the disease were recorded in the different countries and territories.
WHO previously assured that investigations on the origin of the disease would be lodged. It also previously expressed that they are hoping to send researchers in China, specifically in the market in Wuhan City.
Recently, an update crossed the surface. Based on a report on ABS-CBN News, WHO said that a team of experts is set to fly to China in January 2021. They will investigate the animal origin of COVID-19.
The confirmation came from WHO spokesperson Hedinn Halldorson. Based on the report, in July, the UN health agency had sent a team to Beijing for the groundwork of the international investigation.
China is already recovering from the pandemic. Currently, the United States which recorded over 17 million cases of the disease remains as the country with the most number of cases.
