WHO to send investigative team to China

World Health Organization's (WHO) Director-General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus revealed on Monday that the agency "will be sending a team next week to China to prepare for" the investigation into the origins of the novel coronavirus.

"We can fight the virus better when we know everything about the virus including how it started," he pointed out in a conference at the WHO headquarters in Geneva.

The issue of COVID-19's origin has been one of the focal points of the political and diplomatic tensions between the United States and China. A month ago, US President Donald Trump announced that Washington will cut all ties with the WHO because of Beijing's alleged "total control" of the agency.
