WHO sends experts to China as cases of nCoV exceed 40,000


A World Health Organization (WHO) team left for China on Sunday to assist with containing the novel coronavirus outbreak, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said on Twitter.

“I’ve just been at the airport seeing off members of an advance team for the @WHO-led #2019nCoV international expert mission to #China, led by Dr. Bruce Aylward, veteran of past public health emergencies,” Ghebreyesus said.

Aylward has also lead the WHO’s response to Ebola, as well as initiatives for immunization, communicable diseases control and polio eradication.
