Members of the China-World Health Organization (WHO) team visited Wuhan, the epicenter of the novel coronavirus, over the weekend to inspect the work being done to contain the novel coronavirus. 

The joint expert team visited the Tongji Hospital and a temporary hospital converted from Wuhan Sports Center, reported the National Health Commission (NHC). 

The team reported back to the National Health Commission of China in Wuhan on the status, main findings and suggestions of the epidemic. China will further improve institutions and mechanisms for the prevention and control of major coronavirus outbreak, improve the national public health emergency management system, and continue to strengthen cooperation with the WHO.
