The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Sunday that a team of international experts led by the organization has gone to Beijing to help with investigations into the outbreak of the Coronavirus.

The organization’s director-general, Tedros Adhanom Gebresus, who visited Beijing for talks with Chinese President Xi Jinping and Chinese ministers in late January, has returned after agreeing to send an international mission there.

However, it took about two weeks to obtain the government’s approval of the formation of the team, which was not announced except to say that it is a veteran physician at the World Health Organization, Bruce Elward, a Canadian specialist in epidemics and emergencies.

“I was just at the airport to bid farewell to members of an advance team for the WHO-led international experts’ mission to China, headed by Dr. Bruce Illward, who has extensive experience in previous public health emergencies,” Tedros wrote in a Twitter Tweet from Geneva.

China has announced an increase in the number of deaths from the coronavirus outbreak to 811, which is more than the number of victims of the SARS outbreak worldwide, while the authorities have drawn up plans to prepare for the return of millions to their jobs after the end of the Lunar New Year holiday after their extension.

The Geneva-based World Health Organization figures show that the virus, which has reached 24 countries, has killed about two percent of more than 37550 cases in the world, with 99 percent of infections being recorded in China.
