China blocks WHO team from entering the country


China has stopped the entry of a WHO team designed to find the origin of Coronavirus that has plagued the world since it first cases in Wulan Province of China. The team made up of scientists and virologists from all over the world was put together to visit Wulan and find the origin and cause of why the coronavirus moved from other species to human. The first case of Covid-19 was recorded in Wulan China since 2019 and has plagued majority of the world with case exceeding over 50 million and deaths over 2 million. When the first cases of Covid-19 were recorded in Wulan, measures were put in place by the Chinese government to contain the virus but it prove to no avail as the virus spread like wildfire all over the country and then the world. Also to determine how the virus started affecting humans from other species.

This supposed trip has been planned since July 2019 and the Chinese government were informed of the imminent trip due to start January 2021. WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyeus has expressed his disappointment on the denial of the team. Mr Tedros spoke to some unspecified senior Chinese officials, he also reported that two members of this have traveled to China already but the rest weren't able to travel last minute as scheduled. He also made it clear on the high priority of the mission by the UN health Agency in the combat of Covid-19. It was also reported that members of this International scientific team had already started leaving their home countries but were denied entry into China but the government. The Chinese government stand is that they aren't done finalizing preparation for team despite talks beginning as early as July the previous year. The Chinese government has been carrying out research on it own since the outbreak and a state owned media has alleged that the virus could have not originated from Wulan despite first cases been reported in Wulan. To collaborate that story, Chinese Foreign Minister Want Yi reported that new research shows that the pandemic was likely to have been caused by separate outbreaks in multiple places in the world. Leaving the question on the true origin of Covid-19.

The UN health agency has searched a lot of criticism from President Donald Trump and other top US officials on its excessive praise on China's initial handling of the outback and later it initial devaiancy to combating coronavirus. China has no reported over 97000 cases with over 5000 deaths according to Johns Hopkins University. Hospital in China are currently treating over 500 people for the virus while another 300+ are being observed in isolation for being suspected cases or for testing positive without symptoms. Stay tuned to for the updates.
