An advance team of the World Health Organization will arrive in Beijing later Monday for the ongoing outbreak of the novel coronavirus pneumonia, a spokesman said.
They will form a joint expert team with Chinese experts to conduct in-depth exchanges on the current situation and epidemic prevention and control, said Mi Feng, a spokesman of the National Health Commission.
They will also offer suggestions for China and other affected countries to join hands in future epidemic prevention and control, Mi said at a news conference of the Joint Prevention and Control Mechanism of the State Council.
“We welcome experts from all countries including the United States to participate in the joint expert team. We believe that after consultation and communication, we can make appropriate arrangements for the joint team in China,” he said.
