WHO's Director General 'very disappointed' after China prevents visit to study virus origins

China has stopped members of a scientific team from arriving to Wuhan to investigate the origins of Covid-19, WHO's Director General Tedros Adhanom has said.

"Today we learned that Chinese officials have not yet finalised the necessary permissions for the team's arrival in China." Tedros Adhanom said.

"I am very disappointed with this news, given that two members had already begun their journeys and others were not able to travel at the last minute."
