WHO expert panel to end quarantine in Wuhan on Thursday
The expert panel from the World Health Organization (WHO), on a mission to conduct scientific research on the novel coronavirus together with Chinese experts, will finish their COVID-19 quarantine at a hotel in the central China city of Wuhan on Thursday.
According to one of the WHO experts, they have been communicating with Chinese scientists via video meetings over the past two weeks. The two sides will soon conduct joint fieldwork in days.
A 13-member WHO expert panel arrived in China on January 14, with another two experts delayed from entering the country after testing positive for coronavirus antibodies.
One of the two experts was later granted access to the country after testing negative in a new round of COVID-19 antibodies test, China's Foreign Ministry revealed on January 15.
