The number of confirmed coronavirus cases in China has surpassed 72,000. The death toll stands at over 1,800, while more than 12,000 have recovered. The virus has spread to 25 other countries, which altogether have reported more than 800 cases.
UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said, "China is making great efforts in fighting the novel coronavirus."
The team of experts has been visiting different localities in China, except Wuhan. How should people understand this? In answer to this question, Rosellini said it is important that the team sees what is happening at the provincial level.
However, regarding a visit of Wuhan, he erred on the side of caution, saying it is in the middle of the emergency where the health services are very stretched.
"Maybe it was not the best time to go there and distract attention from the medical care and medical services that people need in Wuhan," he said.
"Hopefully, in the future, they will be able to visit them. But they are getting an idea of local requirements. I believe they are visiting a couple of provinces, and they will get an idea of what is happening at the local provincial level and the capacities of local health management of services."
