He didn’t say who the team consists of, nor what they’ll actually be doing out there. It [the WHO] has been urging China for a number of months now to help WHO experts look into the origins of Covid-19, however, it is rumoured that China’s been obstructive in this respect.
WHO chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said: "With this kind of environment and condition, we fear the worst.
“Six months ago, none of us could have imagined how our world -- and our lives -- would be thrown into turmoil by this new virus.
"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."
Mr Ghebreyesus reminded us that this pandemic is going to be around for a while. He added: “We're all in this for the long haul."
The global death rate is around 506,000.
