WHO Mission Visits Hubei Center For Disease Control

Members of the World Heath Organization mission team investigating the origins of the coronavirus in Wuhan on Monday morning visited the Hubei Center for Disease Control.


Members of the World Heath Organization mission team investigating the origins of the coronavirus in Wuhan on Monday morning visited the Hubei Center for Disease Control. Dutch virologist Marion Koopmans could be seen waving from the car as it pulled into the CDC.

On Sunday, the team members visited the Huanan Seafood Market for about an hour in the afternoon, and one of them flashed a thumbs up sign when reporters asked how the trip was going.

The team members, with expertise in veterinary medicine, virology, food safety and epidemiology, also visited two hospitals Sunday that were at the center of the early outbreak - Wuhan Jinyintan Hospital and the Hubei Integrated Chinese and Western Medicine Hospital.
