GENEVA: The World Health Organization is forming a team of international experts to go to China to study the origins of the novel coronavirus, but it will not be in place before the end of July, the head of the WHO’s emergencies program said on Friday, reports Reuters.

A two-person WHO advance team has been in China for a week preparing for the visit of the larger team.

WHO emergencies program chief Mike Ryan said the health body was "very pleased" with the collaboration from Chinese officials so far, but setting up and deploying the larger team would take time.
