BEIJING (Reuters) - China said on Friday that it has arranged for the entry of one British expert from World Health Organization’s (WHO) COVID-19 probe team after re-testing negative for the disease.
Foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian was speaking at a regular news briefing without clarifying when the expert will arrive.
Two members of a WHO-led team that arrived on Thursday in the city of Wuhan to investigate the origins of COVID-19 remained behind in Singapore after testing positive for coronavirus antibodies, the WHO said.
