Delays to a long-planned mission by WHO experts to China to examine the origins of the Covid-19 pandemic are “not simply a visa problem”, Beijing said Wednesday.

Foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told press reporters Wednesday that talks were continuing in between the two sides over “the particular date and particular arrangement of the skilled group’s see”.
” The issue of origin-tracing is extremely made complex. To make sure the work of the worldwide expert team in China goes efficiently, we need to perform needed treatments and make pertinent plans,” stated Hua.
She stated the country is “doing its finest to create good conditions for the worldwide professional group to come to China”.
