‘Knowing the Source of the Virus Is Very Very Important,’ W.H.O. Says
The head of the World Health Organization announced that the organization would send experts to China to investigate the original source of the coronavirus.
We all want this to be over. We all want to get on with our lives. But the hard reality is this is not even close to being over. Although many countries have made some progress, globally the pandemic is actually speeding up. Tomorrow marks six months since W.H.O. received the first reports of a cluster of cases of pneumonia of unknown cause in China. The six-month anniversary of the outbreak coincides with reaching 10 million cases and 500,000 deaths. Knowing the source of the virus is very, very important. It’s science, it’s public health. We can fight the virus better when we know everything about the virus, including how it started. And we will be sending a team next week to China to prepare for that.
