The WHO said China granted permission for a visit by its experts, with a 10-person team expected to arrive this week.
The Organization further revealed that before most could even begin their journeys they faced roadblocks, with Beijing yet to grant them entry.
According to the WHO chief, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, members of the international scientific team have begun over the last 24 hours to leave from their home countries to China as part of an arrangement between WHO and the Chinese government.
“Today, we learned that Chinese officials have not yet finalised the necessary permissions for the team’s arrival in China.
“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.
“I have been in contact with senior Chinese officials’ and that he had ‘once again made it clear that the mission is a priority for the WHO.
“I have been assured that China is speeding up the internal procedure of the earliest possible deployment. We’re eager to get the mission under way as soon as possible.”
