Beijing, January 11
China said on Monday that a group of experts from the WHO was due to arrive in the country on Thursday to probe the origins of the Covid pandemic, ending the uncertainty and delay which drew sharp criticism from the world health body. Experts from the WHO would conduct a field visit to China on January 14, the state-run CGTN quoted China’s National Health Commission as saying in a report.
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian said China supported scientists around the world to conduct a global study on the origins of the virus. — PTI
