BEIJING - Two World Health Organization (WHO) experts arrived in China for a joint research on the origin of the COVID-19 virus, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said on Monday.
The WHO will conduct similar trips to other countries and regions in light of the actual need
After consultation between the two sides, the Chinese government had agreed that the WHO would send experts to Beijing to exchange ideas with their Chinese counterparts on science-based cooperation in tracing the origin of the novel coronavirus, Hua told a press briefing.
The fundamental consensus between China and the WHO is, origin-tracing is a scientific issue which should be studied by scientists through international research and cooperation across the globe, Hua stressed.
It is also the view of the WHO that tracing the origin of the virus is an ongoing process that would probably concern many countries and localities, and the WHO will conduct similar trips to other countries and regions in light of the actual need, she said.
