    WHO spokesperson reveals details of its expert team visit to Wuhan


    Even as vaccines are rolled out, COVID-19 continues to ravage the world, having caused nearly 2 million deaths. The situation is in dire need of stronger global cooperation. That spirit can be at least reflected by the latest World Health Organization (WHO) expert team's visit to China which will start in Wuhan, where the first cases of infections in China were reported.

    "This is about understanding what happened so that the world can be better equipped as the world to prevent it happening again," said WHO spokesperson Margaret Harris in an exclusive interview with CGTN host Tian Wei. She stressed that the field trip is "not about finding someone to blame. Let's leave the politics out of it."

    Dr. Harris revealed that preparations about the mission started last October. There were a few virtual meetings held since then. This trip will be about a wide variety of subjects related to the discovery research of the origins of COVID-19. While no quick answers are expected.
