No fewer than one hundred countries in the European Union are presently pushing for an independent investigation into the coronavirus pandemic that has infected 4,589,526 and killed 310,391 people.
CNN reports that a resolution drafted by the European Union will be presented at the annual meeting of World Health Organization members this week, and calls for an “impartial, independent and comprehensive evaluation” of “the (WHO)-coordinated international health response to Covid-19.”
Though, it doesn’t mention China specifically, but there’s a general expectation that the country where the virus originated will definitely come up.
All of this comes as Dr Zhong Nanshan, the Chinese government’s senior medical adviser, confirmed that local authorities in Wuhan had suppressed key details about the magnitude of the initial outbreak.
Zhong also said a lack of immunity among citizens could put China in danger of another wave of outbreaks.
