Chinese scientists present COVID-19 data to WHO Tuesday

The World Health Organisation has invited Chinese scientists to present detailed data on viral sequencing at a meeting of the Technical Advisory Group on SARS-CoV-2 Virus Evolution on January 3.

The WHO also urged China to share specific and real-time data on the epidemiological situation regarding the current surge in COVID-19 cases.

This followed growing concerns that Beijing provided only limited information to global databases about variants circulating in China, and its testing and reporting on new cases have diminished.

China said it would end mandatory quarantine on arrival, prompting many jubilant Chinese to make plans to travel abroad.

Consequently, many countries, including the United States, Japan, and Italy have imposed restrictions on visitors from China.

Meanwhile, the WHO, on Friday (December 30, 2022) had a high-level meeting with officials from China’s National Health Commission and the National Disease Control and Prevention Administration.
