▴ WHO investigation team to visit China soon to investigate origins of COVID-19
China and WHO is discussing a trip for experts to investigate the origins of COVID-19 and the details of the trip to China will be released in a timely manner

On Monday, the WHO emergencies director Michael Ryan said that they had received reassurances from Beijing that international experts would soon be able to travel to China to help probe the animal origins of COVID-19.

In May, the annual meeting of the World Health Assembly (WHA), the decision-making body of the Geneva-based WHO, passed a unanimous resolution to probe the origin of the virus.

China also backed the resolution. Last month, many countries called on the WHO to send the team and share more details about the mission.

Meanwhile, it was reported that with the winters set in, widescale measures are being enacted in Tianjin, Shanghai and Manzhouli, even though the number of new cases remains low in China compared to the United States and other countries that are seeing new waves of infections.

Officials and experts have warned that the chance of the virus spreading will be greater in cold weather.

Recent flareups have shown that there is still a risk of the virus returning, despite being largely controlled within China.

The National Health Commission informed that the death toll stands at 4,746 and the total number of cases reached 92,755 in mainland China, Macau, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.

As per media reports, Shanghai, Tianjin and Manzhouli in the Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region seek to soon contain their respective Covid-19 outbreaks with measures such as quarantine in the neighbourhoods where cases were found, interrupting public services and closing schools.
