The head of the World Health Organization on Tuesday accused China of hampering its investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic by failing to grant international experts permission to enter the country as part of their examination.
WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he is “disappointed” by Beijing’s stalling and noted that the members of the international scientific team have begun leaving their home countries in the past day under an agreement between WHO and the Communist Chinese government.
“Today, we learned that Chinese officials have not yet finalized the necessary permissions for the team’s arrival in China,” Tedros said during a news conference in Geneva.
“I’m very disappointed with this news, given that two members had already begun their journeys and others were not able to travel at the last minute, but had been in contact with senior Chinese officials,” he said.
The investigators are expected to travel to Wuhan, the Chinese city where the first outbreaks of the pandemic occurred in December 2019.
