Chinese authorities have not yet permitted the International scientific team.
World Health Organization Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus has said that an international scientific team was ready to visit China to learn the origin of corona virus pandemic.However,he added that the Chines authorities denied the permission to the visiting team. The WHO team is in constant touch with Chinese government to ensure easy permission,quickly.
Meanwhile there is arising protest against Chinese attitude in this regard.
Many believe that China wanted to hide vital information on Covid-19 from other countries and WHO.
“On Tuesday we learned that Chinese officials had not yet finalized the necessary permissions for the team’s arrival in China.
We are working with Chinese colleagues to ensure the international mission is able to proceed without further delay. “-says WHO Director General Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus told media in a virtual press meet.
“Vaccines are giving us real hope of bringing the pandemic under control in the next 12 months.
One year on since WHO issued its first Disease Outbreak News (DON) about this virus, 42 countries have started vaccinating their high-risk populations with various COVID-19 vaccines.
Of the 42, 36 are high-income and six are upper middle-income countries.
This is clearly a problem and this problem is getting worse because some countries are pursuing new deals outside of COVAX offering higher prices.
This compromises our collective commitment to equitable access. “-said the WHO Director General.
